Notes & Reviews:

Jerome Summers writes: "From Brahms' first meeting (in March of 1891) with the Meiningen Orchestra’s principal clarinetist Richard Muhlfield, the composer's work reflects how profoundly he was inspired by the clarinetist. The friendship between them was evident in Brahms’ playful reference to the clarinetist as "my dear nightingale." It is this metaphor which is reflected in the present series of clarinet recordings, all of which are world premieres... The four commissioned composers have each established a distinguished body of music which demonstrates their exceptional lyrical gifts, as well as their respect for music of established compositional techniques. Each of the composers responded to my wish to have a lyrical, but dramatically rhapsodic work created especially for this recording project.
