 The Good, the Bad and the Sad* April 11, 2017 By owen  ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "I did not particularly care for the flute concertos but loved the clarinet concerto. My impressions were later affirmed when I read a review by Ates Orga (author, producer and critic) on Classical-Music.com (BBC Music Magazine). Mr. Orga finds Zuckerman's ''rushed allegros and breathless ornamentation lack composure while her slow movements border tremulously on the sleepy...Marcellus with Szell predictably in control belongs in another class. Here is beautifully pure clarinet playing.'' Robert Marcellus was principal clarinetist with the Cleveland Orchestra from '57 thru '73. He was forced to retire due to a worsening of his diabetic retinopathy. He went on to teach at Northwestern University even after completly losing his sight. It would be hard to recommend this CD solely based on the Clarinet Concerto which lasts just under 29 minutes. *apologies to Sergio Leone" Report Abuse
