I bought this CD because of the Debussy Rhapsodie. As a serious clarinet player, I was tired of the excuse that I hadn't heard the Rhapsodie, so I bought this recording. I thought it was incredible, and after hearing more than 10 other good recordings, this is my favorite. Sabine and the BPO have injected the most excitement and lyricism in this piece. Even if Sabine's interpretation is somewhat unorthodox in terms of tempi in the scherzando and anime sections, this recording really grabs you. The Mozart is also probably the most spirited recording I have heard on a basset clarinet. Although Ms. Meyer really likes to rush her tempi, it comes off rather well. The BPO provides a firm, full, balanced support throughout. This comes off as a more powerful recording than many others. The Takemitsu was a piece I had never heard of, and I'm pleased that it is on this disk. While not being one of my particularly favorite concerti, it is quite interesting. The liner notes do an excellent job of explaining the ideas of the piece. I wish I had Stoltzman's premiere recording. This entire disk comes heartily recommended if you're looking for a little shakeup in the traditional clarinet repertoire and a little bit of new, too.

Sabine Meyer has a silky smooth tone...one you find only amoung the best clarinet players. Her third movement of the Mozart clarinet concerto is the best one i've ever heard. She makes it very light and exciting. It's really a neat recording because the Mozart concerto is on basset horn. Yes, I do agree that Sabine Meyer rushes the second movement along with some other tempos, but in my opinion she pulls it off. Even if you don't like the faster tempos, her tone is enough to distract you. I don't know much about the other selections because I've never personally played them, but they sound beautiful like Sabine Meyer always does. This cd along with other Sabine Meyer works is worth the money!

This rendition of Mozart's K622 is possibly the most well known recording made by the greatest female clarinetist in history. Behind Marcellus and Shifrin, this is the top Mozart Concerto you could have in your music collection. Meyer, characterized by her famous dark German tone, plays the Rondo with such a cheery and jumpy tone that it makes this recording of the final movement unsurpassed by anyone before or after.

One of the classical music world's most prominent solo instrumentalists over the last three decades has been the German-born clarinetist Sabine Meyer, who managed to stir up her first attention by being appointed by Herbert von Karajan to be in the Berlin Philharmonic in 1982, only to have the rest of the orchestra vote against her by a 73-4 count at the end of her nine-month probation period. Overcoming what was really quite a brutal setback, she has since made dozens of recordings of works related to her instrument, including numerous concertos, such as those of Carl Maria von Weber (with Herbert Blomstedt and the Dresden State Orchestra in 1985). She also made what is indisputably one of the great recordings of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto in 1990 with the very same Dresden State Orchestra, that time under the direction of the late Hans Vonk.

On this 1998 recording, she revisits not only Mozart's famous concerto (one of the last works the composer was able to complete), but also revisits the Berlin Philharmonic, this time with Claudio Abbado on the podium. Included here are two highly innovative works that are clarinet concertos in all but actual name: Claude Debussy's "Premiere Rhapsodie", composed in the winter of 1909-10; and the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu's "Fantasma/Cantos", a very contemporary work first heard in 1991 as performed by Meyer's fellow clarinetist Richard Stolzman with the BBC Welsh Symphony. And while Meyer stands out quite well in her second recording of Mozart's beloved work, she also excels in the Debussy and Takemitsu works, on which Abbado and the Berliners give her all the support necessary.
