Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Quintet for Clarinet and Strings is more overtly virtuosic than the great quintets of Mozart and Brahms but also features some wonderfully operatic writing...David Shifrin’s performance is outstanding in every way; he makes a beautifully warm and expressive sound in the lyrical passages, makes the bravura writing sound effortless and brings out the full range of moods in this music, including one which is often missed: humour. It is all too easy for the florid passages to turn into a sterile and pointless technical exercise, especially since they are nowhere near as difficult to perform on modern clarinets as on Baermann’s ten-keyed instrument. Shifrin manages to sound as if he and his colleagues are really having fun and I for Read more once found this amusing and enjoyable rather than merely technically dazzling."
