Robert Plane

Robert Plane won the Royal Overseas League competition in 1992. Principal Clarinet of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, he has appeared as soloist with the City of London Sinfonia, Northern Sinfonia, Ulster Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Bournemouth Sinfonietta, Scottish Ensemble and Zurich Chamber Orchestra in major concert halls across Europe from the Zurich Tonhalle to Madrid’s Auditorio Nacional de Musica. His repertoire encompassing both classic and contemporary works, he has given the world premiere of concertos by Diana Burrell, Piers Hellawell and Nicola LeFanu. As a chamber musician he performs and broadcasts with his duo partner Sophia Rahman, and as a member of the Plane Dukes Rahman Trio and the septet Mobius. He regularly collaborates with leading ensembles at the major UK recital halls and festivals and has played chamber music in the USA, South America, the Far East and much of continental Europe. Robert Plane is a successful recording artist with a particular passion for British music, his interpretations of classical works as well as works by Finzi, Bax, Stanford, Ireland and Howells having been highly acclaimed, garnering a number of prestigious awards and nominations. He enjoys a particularly close relationship with the Gould Piano Trio, with which he directs his own annual chamber music festival in Corbridge, Northumberland. Their recording for Chandos of Messiaen’s Quatuor pour la fin du Temps was hailed by the magazine BBC Music as ‘among the best modern accounts’ of this monumental work. www.robertplane.com
