Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

Classics Today
Fr÷st just may be the finest clarinetist (sic) alive, and this entire production is typical of what we have come to expect from BIS... There is no more exciting label around today.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2007 *****
The Swedish clarinettist Martin Fr÷st plays with admirable virtuosity and smoothness of tone, and it's hard to imagine the music better performed.

Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
Martin Fr÷st's style of playing is well suited to Weber: he has a clear, fresh tone and fingers undefeated by even the most sensational of the applause music that ends some of these works... This all contributes to a charming, eloquent performance of the Concertino... These are attractive, exhilarating performances, clearly recorded so as to do justice to the orchestral effects which were always part of Weber's exuberant invention.
