Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the 19th century the clarinet underwent a remarkable change of image: technical improvements made a new, cantabile style of playing possible.

It was Sabine Meyer who brought this repertoire back into the limelight – a soloist of whom critics have said that "the palette of her timbre and dynamic nuance hardly knows any boundaries".
