Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Sabine Meyer’s technical brilliance is indisputable and impressive and her playing in this programme of Weber’s concertante works for clarinet is a delight to hear. The excellent recordings also do justice to the highly individual sounds of Weber’s orchestra.’ -- (Gramophone) 'Sabine Meyer’s technical brilliance is indisputable and impressive and her playing in this programme of Weber’s concertante works for clarinet is a delight to hear.
