I have recently been commissioned by 360 Music to write four books of etudes for clarinet and saxophone due for release in 2016/2017.
“Sonata for clarinet alone” was published by June Emerson Wind Music in 2007. In 2011 it was chosen for the Confederation Musicale de France exam syllabus. It was recorded by Leslie Craven for Clarinet Classics (which also features Tom performing in duet with Leslie) and has received the following praise:
“The work of Tom Jackson – Sonata for Clarinet Alone is in my view the strongest piece on the disc … catches one’s attention immediately and is direct and modern … the clarinet sings and tells a story … that is the strength of a solo work.”
Paul Kaiser, Dutch clarinet magazine De Klarinet
