Notes & Reviews:

"Emma Johnson...gives us a record-setting recording of the sublime Mozart Quintet...this ASV recording catapults to the top of the heap...This recording is perfect, an iconic representation of a soul at peace with itself. Johnson's first entrance is magical, soft, supple, but insistent...A superlative release--one for the books." -Ritter, ARG

Emma Johnson returns after a five year recording hiatus with two of the most popular clarinet chamber works. It was with the Mozart Clarinet Concerto (CD DCA 532) that Emma made her spectacular ASV recording debut as a teenager. Now she plays Mozart's gloriously lyrical Clarinet Quintet; not only the first great chamber composition for clarinet, but one that has remained unsurpassed ever since. Weber's Clarinet Quintet is also a superb piece, more extrovert and concerto-like than Mozart's. Emma is joined by a quartet of distinguished musical friends; together they offer a recital of sublime chamber music making.
