Notes & Reviews:

Already at the beginning of Weber's first Clarinet Concerto a fairy-tale atmosphere spreads out. In a gloomy F minor the cellos present their mysterious theme over repeating eighth notes in the strings to a commentary in bold trills by the second violins, and then the energy that has built up is unleashed in a mighty fortissimo beat by the whole orchestra. In the second movement the solo clarinet forms a quartet in the best of moods with three muted horns.

The Concertino represents a miniature opera with an overture, narrating recitatives, and glamourous arias. The imaginative power of the listener is richly fueled; even if no "program" can be discovered behind the notes, a fascinating story arises directly in the receptive imagination - pure romanticism!

Thanks to playing technique of the highest order, paired with a sensitive feel for the emotional moments and his eloquent playing style, Martin Spangenberg is able to remove Weber's clarinet concertos from the cabinet of virtuoso victuals and to reveal the genuine delicacy of this music.
