This CD is some of the best Clarinet playing I have ever heard. If you enjoy listening to the Clarinet or you play the Clarinet, this is a really good CD to hear what the instrument can do and what it is supposed to sound like. If you like this CD you should pick up Collins playing the Beethoven Violin Concerto transposed for Clarinet. That CD also has the Mozart Clarinet Concerto being played on a basset clarinet and is worth getting no matter what type of music you enjoy.

Michael Collins does the pieces justice. He sails through the technically difficult passages with ease and uses the most beautiful legato playing I've heard in the two slow movements. I also own his cd of the Mozart Concerto and Beethoven's Violin Concerto transposed for clarinet, which is equally if not more impressive. Bravo!

Spohr: Clarinet Concertos Nos. 1 and 2, Potpourri in F major, and Variations in B flat major

Louis (Ludwig) Spohr (1784-1859) was a German composer, violinist, conductor, teacher and organizer that exerted a profound influence on the development of nineteenth century music, that being the start of the Romanticism period. A forgotten master who wrote some impressive orchestral and chamber music that, in his day, was considered on par with both Mozart and Beethoven. Spohr wrote in all genres and had an impressive prolific output, including 150 works with Opus numbers and almost as many without. Nine symphonies, during 1803-1804 he wrote more violin concertos than any other composer 18 in all, chamber music no fewer than 36 string quartets and 4 double quartets for 2 string quartets, duos, trios, quartets, quintets, sextets, septets, octets and a nonet, solos for violin, and for harp his wife's favorite instrument. Opera, songs, corals and mass are part of Spohr's output along with cantatas and concertos. Spohr wrote 15 violin concertos and 10 works for the clarinet.

Inspired by a meeting in Gotha in 1808 with the virtuoso clarinetist Johann Simon Hermstedt (1778-1846) and for the next 26 years Spohr would write some excellent music for the clarinet repertoire. In the course of two years Spohr would write four concertos for Hermstedt. Just as Mozart had Anton Stadler, von Weber and Mendelssohn had Heinrich Baermann, but von Weber did write his Grand Duo Concertant with Hermstedt in mind, and Brahms had Richard Muhlfeld, the relationship between Spohr and Hermstedt strengthened and, again, the clarinet virtuoso inspired these composers to produce some of their finest works.
