Notes & Reviews:

Sharon Kam loves opera. More, maybe, than one would expect of a world-class clarinetist - unless you know that she has been married for many years to an opera conductor, and so feels quite at home with music drama. Then you will also understand that her new CD Opera! fulfils a long-held dream and, at the same time, adds several interesting pieces to the instrument's relatively limited concert repertoire. In any case, this recording goes far beyond what one normally expects of arrangements. Together with Andreas Tarkmann, Sharon went through the Italian repertoire, not afraid to veer off the beaten track, and found suitable pieces that the famous arranger could tailor to the artist and her instrument. Music by Romantic opera composers comes across differently here, imaginatively adapted to the potential of clarinet and chamber orchestra.
