Happy Birthday, Rebecca Clarke!

Dear Friends! Today is Rebecca Clarke’s birthday! She was born in 1886, in Harrow, U.K. Here’s a thrilling performance of her best known work, the 1919 Sonata for Viola, as orchestrated by Ruth Lomon. https://youtu.be/Fb_7GwLGfes (I. “Impetuoso” )
And here is another great work, very different and lesser-known, the Prelude, Allegro, and Pastorale for Clarinet and Viola. She composed it in 1941 but it was not published until 2000. https://youtu.be/T6TUABU51JA
