Notes & Reviews:

Breathtaking performances by celebrated Spanish clarinetist Joan Enric Lluna and the ASQ! A glorious partnership spanning two decades is faithfully captured here by producer Judith Sherman. This superlative interpretation of Brahms (not the first recorded by these same five players) is matched with the stunning newly commissioned work for this quintet by heralded Valencian composer César Cano. This is a stunning tour de force composition matched to a "take no prisoners" virtuosic performance - it sets the heart racing!
