Emma Johnson's Clarinet Goes to Town



"The widespread expectation that this would be one of the highlights of the 2017 Festival was richly fulfilled. Supported by the percussive authority of Paul Clarvis and the brilliant technique of pianist John Lenehan, Emma Johnson’s playing was a true delight. Lovers of her interpretations of the great clarinet repertoire of Mozart, Brahms or Weber would not have needed to be reminded of her ravishing tone and flawless virtuosity, but this was playing on an entirely different level, truly authentic jazz, delivered with the panache and flair of a Benny Goodman or an Artie Shaw and introduced from the platform with an expertise which was thoroughly absorbing and entertaining in itself.”
(Gerald Jones - Secretary, Llandeilo Fawr Festival)

"What a fabulous evening! The audience was captivated by the energy, the musicianship and the rapport.”
(Director, Hagley Music Festival)

"We had a terrific time! Emma Johnson’s performance was sparkling in every way: the mix of informative history and consummate performances from all three musicians was unforgettable.”
(St George’s Bristol)

"An outstanding performance – how has she managed to reinvent herself as a top class jazz musician as well as a top class classical performer?”
(St George’s Bristol)
