Notes & Reviews:

The Fell Clarinet Quartet's journey through Eastern Europe takes in sophisticated reworkings of Bartók and earthy re-imaginings of klezmer, introducing some unfamiliar names along the way. The four clarinets lend a wonderfully suggestive reediness to these laments and dances, which enhances the music's rustic tone. With the Fell Quartet as your guide, this whirlwind tour of Eastern Europe is seductive, virtuosic, and not without moments of real grit.
