Notes and Editorial Reviews

Since her ASV debut in the 1980s, Emma Johnson has established herself as one of the current generations’ foremost exponents of the clarinet. Her repertoire ranges from the 18th century to the present, with more than the occasional visitation to the antipodes of the instrument’s repertoire, including recordings of concertos by Koželuch, Stanford, and Finzi. Ms Johnson is in fine fettle here by way of performances that exude lyricism and virtuosity in spades. Her colleagues are also first-rate, smartly projecting their roles, which, though secondary, are nonetheless important and require careful and meticulous attention to each and every detail.

These are recordings of exceptional artistic and sonic quality and fall into queue
Read more with others that continue the outstanding effort of ASV.
