The Trout with Rare Sugar

John Mackey’s exciting, fast and rhythmic Wrong-Mountain Stomp is paired with Nigel Westlake’s concertino for clarinet Rare Sugar which bounces along a general tone of cheeky playfulness and jazzy spirit with an intensely persistent drive. Paul Schoenfield’s Trio continues in the frenetic merry-making style though derived from Jewish klezmer, Eastern European folk, and a hint of gypsy. Closing with Schubert’s popular piano quintet ‘The Trout’, named after his song which features as the theme for a set of variations in the final movement.
