This compact disc features some of the most exciting music ever composed for the clarinet. Melvin Warner's original release on LP was called "a real find, one of the finest clarinet recordings I have yet to hear" by Edward Tatnall Canby writing in Audio Magazine. Warner, former associate principal of the Saint Louis Symphony, is clarinet and chamber music professor emeritus at Northern Illinois University.
