R E V I E W S:

"The Clarinet Quintet (K 581, 1789) and Clarinet Concerto (K 622, 1791) are two of Mozart’s finest scores. Those who enjoy Sir Neville Marriner’s way with music of the Classical period should relish this disc. Employing modern instruments, Sir Neville’s London-based orchestra plays with verve and skill. The chamber ensemble—Kenneth Sillito and Harvey de Souza, violins; Robert Smissen, viola; and Stephen Orton, cello—blend beautifully with the smooth elegance and rich tones of Andrew Marriner’s clarinet. Sillito’s fine work is especially valuable, because the score of the Quintet gives almost as many solo and
Read more leading-voice passages to the first violin as to the clarinet. Played over stereo equipment, these are the best-sounding performances of these pieces that have come my way; over SACD equipment, the sound is even better. PentaTone Classics further characterizes this as an 80/50 Anniversary Album, Sir Neville turning 80 this year and son Andrew turning 50 in 2004. The rich, warm recording was achieved in the Henry Wood Hall, May 31–June 2, 2004."
