All Music Guide - Mike D. Brownell
Listeners who picked up this CD may never realize that the soloists performing concertos of Mozart, Glière, and Korngold are actually winners of a young artist competition the ARD International Music Competition instead of long-established soloists. Clarinetist Sebastian Manz does well by his teacher Sabine Meyer in a truly elegant, refined interpretation of the Mozart "A major Concerto." His tone is pure and clear and his interpretation is fresh, vibrant, and completely convincing. In a complete rarity, the second work on the program is Glière's "E flat major Harp Concerto" performed by Emmanuel Ceysson. Though the work is scarcely known, Ceysson's playing is somehow ...

All Music Guide - Mike D. Brownell
Listeners who picked up this CD may never realize that the soloists performing concertos of Mozart, Glière, and Korngold are actually winners of a young artist competition the ARD International Music Competition instead of long-established soloists. Clarinetist Sebastian Manz does well by his teacher Sabine Meyer in a truly elegant, refined interpretation of the Mozart "A major Concerto." His tone is pure and clear and his interpretation is fresh, vibrant, and completely convincing. In a complete rarity, the second work on the program is Glière's "E flat major Harp Concerto" performed by Emmanuel Ceysson. Though the work is scarcely known, Ceysson's playing is somehow entirely captivating and engaging, instantly elevating the neglected work to a higher level. Perhaps the biggest surprise on the disc comes with 17-year-old Hyeyoon Park's vivid, energetic performance of the Korngold "Violin Concerto." Despite its many technical and interpretive obstacles, Park tosses off the piece with apparent ease and abundant confidence. For all three young soloists, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra is led by young, up-and-coming conductors Cornelius Meister and Lawrence Renes and provides a well-balanced, sensitive, and detailed accompaniment. BR Klassik's sound is rich and warm. Listeners who are interested in top-knotch performances by artists whose careers merit watching will be pleased with this album.

    Three great performances!

    This recording of concerti keeps the listener interested. Sebastian Manz' clarinet displays a variety of voices appropriate to Mozart's music. Manz maneuvers between loud and soft dynamic and between dance-like and legato gestures with great style. Emmanuel Ceysson plays angelically on the harp in Reinhold Gliere's harp concerto, especially in the virtuosic sections of the third movement (Allegro giocoso). The ensemble and soloist take turns, weaving in and out of the spotlight gracefully. The opening of Korngold's violin concerto displays Hyeyoon Park's musicality, feeling, and velvet tone quality. What lovely pieces by Korngold! All of the playing is superb, and the recording quality is top-notch; one might not even guess this is a live recording until you hear the beginning of the applause at the end of each concerto. I do find it strange that Mozart was programmed with the other two more Romantic and modern composers. However, the order of pieces seems to flow well, resulting in a balanced performance that progresses naturally. An overall wonderful recording.
