Notes & Reviews:

The chamber music pieces on this disc show how richly satisfying Hindemith's music can be. By turns passionate, deeply moving and humorous, each work that features the clarinet explores the wind instrument's expressive potential, whether through lyrically arching melodies, passages of lilting innocence or fiery spirit. In the 'Three Easy Pieces for Cello and Piano' Hindemith demonstrates mastery through restraint. Spectrum Concerts Berlin has also recorded two acclaimed discs of music by Hindemith's contemporary and fellow exile Ernst Toch for Naxos

”Spectrum Concerts Berlin has been in existence for about 20 years, but has only recently become widely known in this country, with several recordings on Naxos and a series of appearances at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall. Their repertoire encompasses many instrumental combinations, but it’s clear who the star is here. Enthusiastically recommended to Hindemithians, chamber-music mavens, and clarinet fanciers.”-Fanfare
