Format: Audio CD
In his liner notes to this CD, John Warrack states that, excluding duos, Carl Maria von Weber composed only 3 pieces of chamber music, in a catalog of 300+ works. This CD conveniently collects those 3 works, although curiously they are not presented in chronological order:

Tracks 1-4: Clarinet Quintet (1815)
Tracks 5-8: Trio for flute, cello and piano (1819)
Tracks 9-12: Piano Quartet (1809)

Warrack's notes, however, analyze the works in chronological order. That slightly disconnected quirk between presentation and notes aside, Warrack does note that Weber likes to tweak classical sonata form around, fitting for the composer considered by many as the forefather of the 19th century Romantic movement in music. As a result, they aren't quite as obviously clear-cut in structure as comparable works by Mozart would be, or even Brahms in his way, so you may need to pay a bit extra attention in terms of subtleties of structure. However, of course, there is nothing "inaccessible" about the works in terms of harmonic language or style.

The Gaudier Ensemble, with musicians suitably divided for each work (I think that cellist Christoph Marks is the only musician common to all 3), gives excellent performances throughout. You're definitely in more than good hands with these players. Particularly for those who want to explore a bit of a by-way in chamber music, this CD is well worth your exploration.

I think it is generally fair to concentrate on the performance, sound quality and perhaps packaging (liner notes etc) when one is reviewing classical music that has been recorded a couple of times before. However, when it comes to works which are generally not that well known and are rarely recorded, I think it is arguably appropriate to rate the work as well as the performance. I don't really think these works are all that great when they are compared to masters like Beethoven, Mozart and Schubert. The works on this CD lack the structural completeness works by these masters are characterised by. However, these works have their own charm and it cannot be denied that the clarinet quintet is excellent and the performance of it here is fine. The other two works are less impressive. The piano quartet is rather weak structurally. Also, this recording of the quartet is not too good, it has to do with rather subdued accoustics rather than the performance itself. The trio for flute, cello and piano is structurally more solid than the quartet but again the accoustics are subdued. Also, I have heard better performance of the trio.

So, all taken to together, I cannot recommend this CD. I find something to be missing in terms of recording quality and performances. Moreover, I don't really think too highly of the works themselves.
