Oberthür: Le Désir - Nocturne, Op.65 (Clarinet & Piano)

  • 2 in stock
Charles (Carl) Oberthur (1819-1895) was one of the best-known of nineteenth-century harpists and a prolific composer for his instrument. His works include operas, orchestral and choral works and more than three hundred opus numbers for harp, occasionally with other instruments. Le Dsir is one of a set of six nocturnes written to celebrate the second marriage of Adolf, Duke of Massau - still apparently Oberthurs employed in Wiesbaden - in April 1851. This expressive and lyrical Nocturne is written for Clarinet and Piano (or Harp) and has been edited by Oliver Davies.
