5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the price of a subscription, 6 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The Spectator (Kindle Edition)
I subscribed to the paper edition of The Spectator for several years. It was always a stimulating and entertaining read but due to its rather high price I reluctantly cancelled my subscription when I retired a couple of years ago. So I was delighted, when I bought a Kindle last September, to find that a subscription was available for only £2.99 per month -- for this price it's an absolute steal! One or two things such as the cartoons, which I didn't much like anyway, are missing but all the articles are there so, after subscribing now for 3 months, I have no hesitation in giving it a five-star award.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time, 4 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even though it costs pennies rather than pounds it is a waste of time downloading this. It consists of only a few sentences and none of them will be unfamiliar to anyone who reads a newspaper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable listening for clarinetists, 30 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In my view these 6 concertos are the most attractive of all pre-Mozart clarinet concertos. Molter was a prolific and highly talented composer, a contemporary of Bach and Handel, born 11 years after those two composers. He worked as Kapellmeister at Karlsruhe and Eisenach so he would almost certainly have known Bach and been familiar with the master's music. Furthermore he must have had some very fine musicians available for performing his music.
These performances are beautifully and stylishly played by the Dutch clarinetist Henk de Graaf using an Oehler system clarinet pitched in high D made by the legendary (to us mere mortals) German maker Herbert Wurlitzer whose instruments are played by most of the best German orchestral players. His playing is an example to students of the finest German clarinet sound.
