Harrison Birtwistle: Harrison's Clocks
£9 (not available in shops)
Hot on the heels of this summer's Proms performance comes the debut recording of Birtwistle's dazzling piano etudes. These high-octane mechanical fantasies are inspired by the 18th century inventor John Harrison, whose quest to perfect a sea-clock was chronicled in Dava Dobel's book, Longitude.
Errollyn Wallen: Meet me at Harold Moores
£10 (rrp £13.99)
Sonatas for bass clarinet and piano
£8.50 (rrp £12.99)
A fascinating programme of 20th-century sonatas which fully explores the rich timbre and virtuosic possibilities of the bass clarinet. A disc that fills an important gap in the recordings currently available of the bass clarinet - played by a noted exponent of the repertoire.
