The celebrated debut recording of internationally renowned clarinetist Jonathan Cohler. Along with Brahms, Weber and Baermann, this CD includes the world premiere recording of Simon Sargon's Deep Ellum Nights
This is the CD that launched the international solo career of Jonathan Cohler. Listen and hear why BBC Magazine calls these renditions, "vigorous, leonine readings" and "playing of real distinction."
Vigorous, leonine readings... commandingly played... this is playing of real distinction... in total command of every demonstrative and virtuosic gesture... scintillating playing. 5 Stars

The finest in clarinet playing... A great disc! PICK OF THE MONTH
...outstanding in every way. The repertory [of this disc and More Cohler on Clarinet (024-102)] includes both of Brahms' Sonatas, and they have become my preferred performances...his sensational ability to control all musical elements makes these late Brahms masterpieces even more poignant... --Listener Magazine
