Notes & Reviews:

"The English clarinet tradition is well documented in this set...The listener unfamiliar with this repertoire will no doubt be taken by the variety of musical expression as well as the understanding of the solo instrument that each composer admirably and confidently demonstrates. Stitching this together is the artistry of Thea King...Hyperion offers this Dyad 'two-fer' at the price of one of their front line CDs, making it a steal." -Carter, ARG

'Music, its performance, and its recording, of the highest class' (Gramophone)

'The recording is outstandingly truthful. A splendid record' (The Monthly Guide)

'I don't think I have ever heard a more convincing recorded account of the instrument so superbly played here by Thea King' (Hi Fi for Pleasure)

'This set should be on the shelf of every teacher and serious student of the clarinet' (American Record Guide)
