Jump by Karen Wimhurst

Once upon a time in a meadow far away . . . the joint was jumping with life. Insects were calling, frogs croaking, the sounds of summer. This symphony of small voices is rapidly being silenced. This music is for live and multitracked clarinets, insect and amphibian calls. Its lyricism, jagged rhythms, and improvisation lead to a place where we can all trill, whirr, croak and chirrup for joy. Let’s jump right into the living world with the best of them, before it’s too late.

Karen is a well-known composer and clarinettist working throughout the UK and beyond.
