The Clarinets create an acoustic ambient music of unusual grace and beauty. Improvisation is the basis of their music, which bypasses predetermined strategies to concentrate on the organic, seamless sound of the trio as a single entity. The players have the experience, poise and selflessness to keep the attention on this group dynamic, and to tease i tout into compelling and highly cohesive pieces.
