5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary performances - a "must have" 16 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
These performances date from the early 1970s (if I remember correctly), so I, for one, am willing to overlook the inevitable background hiss from the master tapes. As for the quality of the re-mastering, the hiss could have been reduced further, but only at the expense of the purity of the recorded music - you never get something for nothing in this life. Jack Brymer's clarinet tone had a liquid, velvety quality like nobody else's I've ever heard and for me it is more important to preserve that in this recording than to reduce the tape hiss. Brymer was one of the finest clarinetists of the 20th century and his performance of these works is characterised by a calm maturity that I find absolutely spellbinding. These are legendary performances by a legendary clarinetist. BUY THIS CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars sublime 5 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I decided it was time to delve into the world of classical music and picked a selection of music to listen to. (I'm normally Leonard Cohen, Led Zep, Old (Peter Green) Fleetwood Mac, era).

Just how much of a genius was Mozart! And this album is so brilliant and uplifting. Such beautiful music, played so sublimely.
What a fabulous beginning to my "classical education".

4.0 out of 5 stars Mozart: Clarinet Concerto & Quintet 11 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
These two recordings are a splendid achievement of modern musicianship: the notes are played accurately and crisply throughout the entire CD - unlike some distinctly echoey and hazey performances I have heard lately - and, most importantly, with great flair.
In the first movement, Brymer starts the performance with the air of one telling a Harry Potter story to children, such is the opening: intriguing and delightful. He adds a new layer to the already deeply moving second movement of the Clarinet Concerto with his delicate phrasing, articulation and dynamics. The final movement brings the story to a fast ending, with beautiful phrasing, but it maintains and continues an impeccable standard of accuracy. Sir Colin Davis, the conductor, has his beloved London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) on peak form with enthusiasm and dogged accompanying.
Similarly, in the Clarinet Quintet, Brymer is especially moving. As far as the first movement of this work is concerned, it is played with feeling, sweetly and is made exciting, of what could otherwise be considered a slow, tedious movement to some people. The second movement, however, is the highlight of this performance, and is where this performance really comes into its own: the dynamics are touching; there is lots of expression; and the string players respond beautifully by blending into the background at some points, as it were; but still reminding the listener of their presence - a notable achievement. The third movement is a delicate account; indeed almost like a tap dance in some places, with highly skilled playing and strong dynamics. The fourth movement contains some delightful moments: notably the beginning for its hushed and telling opening and the ending for its fast and interesting conclusion.

By Doveman
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I own many versions of these Mozart works, having been an amateur clarinettist myself for many years. These 2 recordings date from the early 70s and some argue they are the best versions. Jack Brymer was an outstanding British clarinettist who developed a unique style of playing: a beautifully warm and sensuous tone with a slight vibrato (quiver of the breath)) in the notes. The performances here are meticulously accurate and crisp, never woolly and fudged. He played with passion and enthusiasm and was a brilliant musician.

The Mozart Concerto, possibly the best-loved work in the clarinet repertoire, was Mozart's last complete instrumental work (1791). In the first movement, Brymer's interpretation is light and playful and the orchestra has a delightful dialogue with the soloist. With the slow adagio movement, there is another theme, this time more emotional and romantic. Classic FM has done much to popularise this movement and it's been used in several film soundtracks. The final movement is quick, near hurried, requiring impeccable phrasing, timing and intonation. Colin Davis with his beloved London Symphony Orchestra are on good form throughout and accompany Brymer with flair and a passion that almost matches his own.

In the Clarinet Quintet, Brymer is equally at home, particularly in the second, slow movement, which he plays beautifully. There are some delightful moments in this Quintet but I've not been as fond of the work as I am of the Clarinet Concerto. Prefer orchestral music, I suppose. Of all the versions, I think this one by Brymer is the best, second only to Thea King.

Very unfortunately, this recording sounds rather dated with a constant analoque tape hiss in the background.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent rendering 4 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These performances of Mozart's most familiar works for clarinet were of the superb standard to be expected of the performers. Jack Brymer's reverence for them was evident, his expression and tone were gorgeous throughout, and the contribution - it would be insulting to call it accompaniment - respectively by the London Symphony Orchestra and the Allegri String Quartet was sympathetic throughout without undue subservience. The recording quality was at least of the highest that my modest sound equipment could reproduce. Recommended without reservation.
