Bernhard Henrik Crusell: The Three Clarinet Concertos

Add To Wish List + £13.99 - Out of stock

Michael Collins OBE embraces the double role of
conductor and soloist in this thrilling revelation of
clarinet treasures by the Finnish composer Bernhard
Henrik Crusell, masterly supported by the fresh and
spontaneous Swedish Chamber Orchestra.
A clarinettist and composer, Crusell wrote works
that were altogether more ambitious than any by his
contemporaries. He achieved fame for his melodic
inflection, his highly nuanced technique, and his
beautiful sound, for which the three concertos,
featured here, interpreted by one of today’s most
internationally respected clarinettists, are an ideal
The level of virtuosity indeed makes severe technical
demands on the soloist, as in the Introduction et air
suédois, featured in the revised version published in
But in the roundness of tone and evenness in quality
throughout the range of the instrument produced by
Collins lies the lasting attraction of a compelling
musical discourse that has ensured Crusell’s recent
widespread revival way beyond the world of the
clarinet and its devotees.
