"This was my first clarinet CD ever (my parents put it in my Christmas stocking when I was in high school).
This disc contains some very good clarinet music, and would make a good introduction CD for someone wanting a taste of clarinet music.
If you already have a few clarinet CDs, this disc may be of limited interest, mostly because it's repertoire is limited and contains pieces that (for the most part) are already widely recorded. There are excerpts from the Mozart Clarinet Concerto, Weber Clarinet Concerti, Brahms Clarinet Sonatas, Bruch's 8 Pieces for clarinet/viola, as well the orchestral version of Debussy's Premiere Rhapsody. With the exception of the Bruch, these are all very common pieces that most clarinetists probably already have one (or several) recordings of.
If you are looking for a good starter disc for you or someone else trying to get into clarinet music, this is a great disc.
