Ten years in the making, Caerulean presents the stunning results of commissions and collaborations between renowned clarinettist Carl Rosman and some of the most cutting-edge composers of our times, with eleven world premiere recordings on one disc, including composers Georges Aperghis, Richard Barrett, Aaron Cassidy, Rebecca Saunders, Chikako Morishita and Mauricio Kagel.

“There are collaborations and collaborations. Sometimes performer and composer work closely on every detail of a piece, developing its tonal palette together, trying out preliminary versions over months or years, the composer remaining involved in the tiniest parameters of timing, tone production or rubato, constantly adjusting details up to the premiere and beyond (recording sessions certainly not excluded). But sometimes the fact that a trusted performer on a well-known instrument wants a solo piece is sufficient stimulus on its own: a piece can also simply arrive and go out into the world without any need for working sessions. Neither extreme of the spectrum, nor indeed any point along it, has a monopoly in the creation of musically fulfilling works.” Carl Rosman
