Item Number: NX.88875065292

Martin Frost's first album on Sony Classical - "Roots" - shows the full range of Martin's artistry as musician and story teller. "Roots" features solo pieces for the clarinet, as well as pieces for clarinet and orchestra, and newly arranged material for clarinet, orchestra, and choir. Thus, the listener will be presented with music as the composer wrote it as well as new arrangements and transcriptions to bring in a fresh approach. "Roots" takes the listener from the eldest European music as we know it today to newly composed pieces, echoing and referencing centuries of music making and composition. Martin's journey traces back music to both of its roots and sources of inspiration - its churchly and its worldly genesis. Martin Frost explains: "I have taken my inspiration from the source and development of music, drawing a line from the earliest "roots" of music - music inspired by dance and folk, music drawn from sacred rituals of praise, and music as pure entertainment - and explored how, from these roots, we can open up a new musical door into the future.".
