Grammophone Magazine, October 2005 issue, North American section

Top of section: "Clarinet Magic from Sean Osborn"

Title: A master clarinetist shines in pieces that explore his instrument's vast range

American Spirit

Defining a national style is tricky, unless some sort of ethnic or folklore influence is apparent. Sean Osborn's disc of clarinet works is titled "American Spirit" but the only pervasive aspect here is the country where all the composers were born. Otherwise, the repertoire ranges far and wide, from works that might be discerned as intrinsically American, such as Copland's Sonata, to pieces that delve into musical territory needing no such categorization - for example, Donald Martino's A Set for Clarinet.

Happily, each score has a distinctive voice. the Copland is a classic of its kind, those proud, soaring phrases and chipper rhythmic activity trademarks of this composer. Likewise, Leonard Bernstein's Sonata gives us more than a few hints of his familiar lyricism and dancelike vitality.

The other pieces fall less specifically into what might be termed American. Peter Schickele, elsewhere known as PDQ Bach, is utterly serious in his Elegies, in which he paints graceful musical canvases rooted in songful gestures. Martino's three miniatures for solo clarinet are vivid explorations of the instrument's vast range and versatile personality.

If Gary Schocker's Sonata II often soundsquaint, it is because the composer intentionally, and cleverly, tweaks familiar styles. And Eric Mandat achieves numberous novel sonorities in Preludes, Book I, by exploiting the clarinet's ability to play multiphonics. The train effects are especially delightful.

Osborn is a maser of all he purveys.

The CD is playing as I write. Clarinet playing awesome. Selection of pieces interesting, different. Finding a recording devoted to clarinet music I've found to be rare. This is a special addition for me.
