Mozart: Clarinet Concerto, Clarinet Quintet

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - EJ Johnson
Mozart had a soft spot for the clarinet -- indeed, the music he wrote for the instrument is some of the most sublime that has ever been composed. Two of those works, the Clarinet Concerto and Clarinet Quintet, are paired on this lovely album, featuring soloist Richard Stoltzman.

The Quintet, aided by the Tokyo String Quartet, is the more intimate of the two works, yet it shares much with its cousin -- it's in the key of A Major, for starters, and features a similar opening melody, as well as passages of ineffable beauty.

The recorded sound is full and detailed, spotlighting Stoltzman's singing style and big, beautiful tone.
