Notes: A set of short works commissioned by Sarah Watts for solo bass and contrabass clarinet – those written for the contrabass can also be performed on bass clarinet. Situated off the Isle of Skye, the Isle of Ramsay is home to annual music courses run by Sarah Watts. This commission celebrated the tenth anniversary of the courses and the ‘Wee Drams’ were premiered in the island’s new Ramsay Distillery in April 2019. Ten Wee Drams is for and about the island. Each Wee Dram takes inspiration from past and current culture, heritage, folklore and the landscape of Ramsay. The commissions were supported and funded by: Creative Scotland, RVW Trust, Clarinet and Saxophone Society of Great Britain, Raasay Music Courses and Raasay Distillery.
