Unheard since two performances in 1897, Charles Martin Loeffler’s Octet is recorded here for the first time, owing to the persistence of Graeme Steele Johnson, a versatile clarinetist whose artistic endeavors range from a TEDx talk to chamber arrangements and performances with the award-winning WindSync. A gem that blends Brahmsian warmth with Impressionist harmony, very much reflecting the American composer’s German and French roots, the Octet showcases Loeffler’s intricate musicianship and unique soundworld. Distinguished musicians have joined in this compelling exploration of musical rediscovery which aims to enrich the present musical landscape by restoring Forgotten Sounds. The program starts with Graeme’s arrangement for chamber ensemble of Debussy’s famed Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, a work suffused with the poetic Symbolism dear to Loeffler, and aptly concludes with another little-known Loeffler work, the titular Timbres oubliés.
