5.0 out of 5 stars A great clarinet with a fine quartet in the old style November 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The previous reviewer is, amateur or not, quite right in her stated preference for the Emerson version. She know what she likes and the Emerson does what they set out to do. One who likes this might also check out the version on Hyperion by the Raphael Ensemble.

However, these Quintets are a great pieces of music and is genius enough for more than one interpretation. Mr. Leister has worked this Quintet many times. He is perfectly combined with the fine Brandis Quartet. But the style is warm and burnished. Emerson is bright and more energetic. For what they intend to do, Brandis does at least as well as the Emerson. For me it is a full five stars, especially on a good quality disc for a nice price.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK performance of great pieces of music October 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I am strictly an amateur, but for whatever reason these recordings did not do it for me. I don't have much to compare this recording of the String Quintet to, but I strongly prefer the Emerson Quartet's recording of the Clarinet Quintet. It just seems to have more life and bounce than this one. If this was bargain-priced, it might be a good deal. But at full price, I think you can do better.

Format:Audio CD
This disc combines one of the 20th centuries most famous clarinetists, Karl Leister, with the Brandis Quartet, both from Berlin. Leister is one of the masters of Brahms' Op. 115 Clarinet Quintet and has recorded the work with a number of other ensembles. The Brandis Quartet I think plays pretty well. Unfortunately, the talents of the performers are put to waste by the Nimbus label's typically awful sonics, at once harsh, acerbic and murky. This disc marks the latest of my many failed experiments with this label.

Look for other alternatives. Not recommended.
