Notes & Reviews:

Michael Collins combines the roles of clarinet soloist and conductor as he leads the Swedish Chamber Orchestra in three works that chart the journey of the clarinet from Mozart's late eighteenth-century Europe, via Aaron Copland's 1940s America, to today's classical scene with a piece written in 2007 by the Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2013
The limpid tone, the suave progress from note to note: such qualities make the Mozart Concerto's slow movement glide by in a dream...No kinks anywhere; but also few emotional markers. Cool perfection, that's the tendency.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The Mozart is beautiful, perceptive, and breathtaking; the Copland is intimate and exuberant; and the Kats-Chernin is urgent and raucous. His expressive risk-taking is enjoyable, too, from the joyful decorations in the Mozart to the sassy pitch-bending in the Kats-Chernin. The Swedish Chamber Orchestra plays with seemingly effortless aplomb and professionalism, no matter the composer or the century.
