Notes & Reviews:

Israeli-American clarinetist Guy Yehuda, hailed by composer John Corigliano as "One of the most awe inspiring clarinetists today" collaborates with pianist, Ralph Votapek on an inspired release of Sonatas by Brahms and Reger. Mr. Yehuda received his Doctorate and Master's Degrees from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, as well as a Performer Certificate, the highest honor awarded to a performer at this venerable institution. He is a sought-after recitalist, performer, composer and clinician. Pianist, Ralph Votapek, has made hundreds of appearances with major American orchestras and has received critical acclaim for his many CD recordings.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The concert is solid. Yehuda offers a nice covered tone and supple phrasing, and Votapek sports excellent touch and technique. They relish the warm and reflective passages in the Brahms sonatas, and they allow Reger's chromatic counterpoint to have a directness of expression. Their efforts enable the interested reader to evaluate the Brahms and Reger contributions on fair terms.
