Notes & Reviews:

This CD was recorded live at Wigmore Hall on October 8, 2004 and was selected as an 'Editor's Choice' by Gramophone magazine. The Guardian of London said of this performance, "Once again it was the musicians' rich and varied palette of lyrical tone that impressed." "In 1890, Brahms wrote to his publisher announcing his intention to retire. Yet within a few months, he would return to the drawing board, inspired by the clarinetist Richard Mulfeld to write, among other works, the Clarinet Quintet recorded here....slip-free and cough-free... it's a thoughtful, supple reading marked by a wonderful sense of teamwork, with Richard Hosford's fluid clarinet subtly embedded in the overall sound, and some magical string sonorities..." -BBC Music Magazine
