Martin Frost's latest releases have featured core repertoire for his instrument from the 18th and 19th centuries, and most recently a disc of his wide-ranging encores. All of these offerings have been singularly well received by reviewers and record buyers alike, and have contributed to Frost's flourishing concert career. On this disc, accompanied by the Australian Chamber Orchestra under Richard Tognetti, Frost presents a wide-ranging selection of works all connected with dancing. The principal work on this disc is Copland's Clarinet Concerto, and with special permission from the Copland Fund, the disc ends with the fireworks of the original and later revised, dazzling ending of the Concerto. Frost also includes on this disc works by Lutoslawski, Anders Hillborg and Piazzolla, as well as an arrangement of Brahms' Four Hungarian Dances arranged by his brother, Goran.
"His virtuosity lies in his exceptional dexterity and agility...and in his daring control of the instrument's dynamic and expressive extremes."The Times
