Notes & Reviews:

Andreas Goepfert was appointed court musician and first clarinetist at the Meiningen court in 1788 and ended up remaining there for the rest of his life, from 1793 with the title of "Cammermusicus". His circumstances in Meiningen during the reign of George I, Duke of Saxe-Meiningen, were nevertheless not very happy. Although concert life experienced what seemed to be a great flourishing with the new accomplishments of the Enlightenment, Goepfert soon became conscious of the narrow limitations of this little residence and made many applications and petitions for permission to travel to continue his musical education - none of which were granted to him. He nevertheless composed a large number of concertos aiming at the sort of effect that was typical during the age of virtuosity and wrote his clarinet works to match his own virtuoso capabilities. A most rewarding rediscovery!

"German clarinetist Dieter Klocker continues his archaeological expedition into long lost clarinet repertoire from the late 18th and early 19th centuries...The Jena Philharmonic...will not leave any listener wanting; the orchestra plays with the balance, color, rhythmic precision, stylish detail, and thorough musicianship that are the hallmarks of more famous ensembles. Goepfert fares quite well, and if the curious listener is willing to ignore Klocker's oddities, a monor master awaits discovery."-American Record Guide
