Notes & Reviews:

A lasting love affair with the clarinet amongst composers from the dawn until the dusk of the Romantic era (i.e. from Schubert to Strauss) is the key takeaway of this Signum release. In recognition, a trio of leading British soloists - clarinetist Julian Bliss, soprano Ailish Tynan and pianist Christopher Glynn - perform a sumptuous selection of the era's chamber music by Brahms, Chopin, Schubert, Schumann and Richard Strauss. The program is centered around Schubert's iconic The Shepherd on the Rock, virtually the final complete work that Schubert composed before his tragic death in 1828, age 31.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The performances are solid. Tynan steals the show with her deep and powerful voice, goregous phrasing, and complete commitment to the music; and Bliss contributes his trademark clarity, excellent technique, and nicely shaped lines. Glynn is a fine pianist, and he complements well the abilities of the soloists. Some chamber music fans will simply appreciate the polished renditions.
