Blowing in the wind
A selection of audio clips featuring the clarinet and/or wind controller (though ‘controller’ is a bit of a misnomer – I have found it a difficult instrument to tame, as you can tell from some of the odd squawks in these performances). Pieces are originals except where the composer is [indicated]. An album, Reeding Aloud, is available on Spotify, iTunes, and other platforms.

And here’s a link to Counsel to girls, a setting of Robert Herrick’s poem encouraging maidens to carpe diem. Sam Christie shot the video.
