Sean Rice and Patrick Cashin (Welcome home Sean!)

Next week St. John's clarinetist Sean Rice comes home to perform with his new band - The National Arts Centre Orchestra. This week on Musicraft, as a welcome home gesture, we'll hear Sean Rice in partnership with pianist Patrick Cashin from their recital called "Songs Without Words." Now in their late twenties, Sean and Patrick have been playing music together since they were 10 and 11 years old respectively. This performance, from Memorial University, reunites them in music that capitalizes on the clarinet's lyrical qualities and includes one of the great staples of the clarinet repertoire - Brahm's Sonata No. 2 in E Flat Major.
