The 16 members of West Oxfordshire Clarinets worked through three centuries of music: a fantastic group of ‘Bach’ pieces, ‘Solace’ a slow and stunning ragtime by Scott Joplin, the romantic ‘Moon River’, ‘Here, There and Everywhere’ by The Beatles and the pure jazz of ‘Come Fly with Me’ were highlights.
Under Wendy Marks’ excellent direction the playing often reached the “Last Night of The Proms” standard and was equally enjoyable.
