Notes & Reviews:

Walt Nielsen and Korbi Adams have been performing together as The Capitol Clarinets Duo since 2007 and their mission is to bring music to populations in need and give back to their Phoenix community.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The Capitol Clarinets offer a recital of varied yet highly accessible music: living Belgian composer and jazz enthusiast Norbert Goddaer's Duets (2000); Fauré's Pavane; 19th Century Cuban pianist Ignacia Cervantes's Tres Golpes and Invitacion, arranged by Cuban clarinetist Paquito d'Rivera; 18th Century English clergyman John Newton's timeless hymn, 'Amazing Grace'; and two spirituals, 'Deep River' and 'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot', both arranged by Nielsen. Adams and Nielsen play with great confidence, secure technique, excellent blend, and good intonation, and their lively phrasing matches their enthusiasm for the music. At the same time, their timbres could use more clarity, and their approach could explore more of the softer side of the clarinet - their dynamic range stays mostly at a mezzo-forte and above, and at these volumes. Nevertheless, they sell the program well, especially the Goddaer Duets, a set of delightfully eclectic miniatures.
