This is such a beautiful piece. And the ensemble playing on this recording is fantastic.
But any performance of this piece stands and falls with the clarinettist. And Karl Leister is the best - there is no other clarinettist who combines his amazing polished, dark, round, German sound with such musical insight. Especially if you're used to English clarinettists who can often sound thin and nasal, you'll find this a revelation.
