Notes & Reviews:

Almost two centuries separate Mozart's Clarinet Concerto from that by Jean Françaix. While Mozart's concerto relies partly on the paradoxical union of serene happiness and anxiety, Françaix's work is characterized by the seemingly contradictory association of humor and seriousness.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Cavallin boasts amazing fingers and articulation, and he often phrases with sensitivity. The orchestra is decent. Both concertos have better renditions.
