The talented young French clarinetist Pierre Génisson, a graduate of the Paris Conservatoire, has chosen to devote his first solo recording – on the Aparté label – to music that, as he puts it, “is part of [his] DNA”. To a programme of French music, therefore, with works by Claude Debussy, Ernest Chausson, Camille Saint-Saëns, Jean Françaix, Francis Poulenc and Jules Massenet: pieces of rare sensitivity and emotion, written for clarinet and piano, all of them composed, in close collaboration with professors of the Paris Conservatoire, for the exit examinations of that institution. The compositions span some hundred and fifty years.
