Notes & Reviews:

This European bestseller is finally available in the U.S. The album includes the world premiere recording of Beethoven's Violin Concerto arranged for clarinet by Mikhail Pletnev. The arrangement works quite well, Pletnev displaying an instinctive feel for the seductive tones of the wind instrument, which is blended well into Beethoven's concerto. In the Mozart, Collins uses the Basset clarinet, for which the piece was originally composed, exposing a richness that is otherwise lost.

Penguin Guide
Campbell's agile and pointed performance of the clarinet work brings fastish speeds and a fresh, unmannered style in all three movements...The earlier work for flute and harp is just as freshly and sympathetically done.
