Ian Mitchell awarded American Music Prize

Congratulations to British clarinettist Ian Mitchell who has tied for second place in The American Prize Ernst Bacon Memorial Award, recognising the best recorded performances of American music by ensembles and individual artists worldwide.

Mitchell received the award for his CD, Isn't this a time? - American Music for Clarinet, featuring a number of composers including Christian Wolff, Eric Mandat, and John Cage. The disc also includes a performance of William O. Smith's Epitaphs For Double Clarinet, requiring the performer to play two clarinets at the same time, pictured above!

From 2007-2014, Mitchell held the position of Head of Wind, Brass and Percussion at Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London. He has commissioned over 60 works for clarinet and bass clarinet, and his CD The Edge of the World, released on Black Box in 2000, was the first recording by a British artist of music for solo bass clarinet.
