Notes & Reviews:

This recording collects pieces for the bass clarinet from the 20th century, which range in their diversity from the late romantic sound-ideal via the Broadway sound of the 1930's, right up to contemporary, enthralling sound spectrums. Especially those pieces, which have become unjustly forgotten or which are unknown, have been tracked down here.
