Notes & Reviews:

In this new Avie release, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra's principal clarinetist, Toddy Levy, steps out of the ensemble and into the spotlight with his solo CD debut in some of the most appealing romantic music for his instrument: Brahms' two lyrically effortless Clarinet Sonatas, Schumann's 'Fantasiestucke' - the only work he composed expressly for clarinet - and 'Three Romances,' an 1849 Christmas present for his wife Clara.
