Performance:   Sonics:    
This rich SACD (more than 81 minutes!) proposes a most enticing program: the Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra with Harp and Piano (1947-48) by Aaron Copland; the arrangement by Martin Frost himself for clarinet and strings of four Hungarian dances by Johannes Brahms; Brahms’ “Klezmer Dances” for clarinet and strings; the second version, dating from 1955, of the “Dance Preludes” for clarinet, harp, piano, percussion and strings by Witold Lutoslawski; “Oblivion” for clarinet, solo violin and strings by Astor Piazzolla; Anders Hillborg’s “Peacock Tales” from 1998/2002 in its chamber version for solo clarinet, piano and strings; Frederik Holberg’s “Dancing with Silent Purpose” for clarinet, strings, and tape recording, with the third movement composed and arranged by Martin Frost. This remarkable recording, not to be missed, distinguishes itself further from other releases by ending as it began, that is with the Concerto by Copland, with the finale and coda of the original version. This release is necessary to any collection.
