Description: 200 years of music for clarinet(s) by Italian composers. All is tonal: Gualdi was a jazz pioneer in Italy, Gervasio was active in the cinema and TV and his nine-minute piece is quite pleasant and Bucchi’s seven-minute work from 1969 contains only moderate brushes with modernity. Stark Quartet.
