Notes & Reviews:

The famous Weber Clarinet Quintet which Janet Hilton plays with freshness as well as subtlety bringing out the most in the music and fully exploiting the quality of the Chandos sound. She is ideally accompanied by the Lindsay String Quartet, providing the perfect balance of classical restraint and romantic ardour. The clarinet concertos of Weber make for some of his most appealing and characteristic music and of the early Nineteenth century repertoire. Janet Hilton certainly demonstrates with these performances that she is part of the tradition of great clarinettists who have performed Weber's challenging works, overcoming the technical tangles seemingly effortlessly and with great warmth of tone. Her outstanding performances of these rare works are presented in the only available complete collection, and offered for the bargain of one mid-price disc. First time available as a two-CD set, and for only the price of one mid-price disc Complete collection of these important clarinet works.
