Mel Bay Publications, Inc.
Lyrical Solos from the British Isles is a collection of folk and traditional songs and dances with one hymn and a few original pieces added, all with the aspiring young clarinetist in mind. The author’s 2018 “English Sonatina” is prominently featured.
The modal and folk song-like character of the sonatina is reflected in the clarinet and piano arrangements of the other eleven songs in the collection, including such stalwarts as: "The Maiden’s Lament", "Emerald Jig", "Wild Mountain Thyme", and "Scarborough Fair" plus two more Marshall originals — "Ballad" and "The Highlands". The folk influence in this music is further enhanced by the innate lyrical quality of the clarinet in combination with stylistically complimentary piano accompaniment.
All in all, these arrangements of well-known tunes together with the author's original compositions and performance notes present an engaging recital repertoire for the young clarinetist.
