Audio Sample

Available From: 01 January 2007
Janet Hilton presents the famous Clarinet Quintet with freshness as well as subtlety bringing out the most in the music and fully exploiting the quality of the Chandos sound. She is perfectly accompanied by the Lindsay String Quartet, providing the perfect balance of classical restraint and romantic ardour.

The clarinet concertos of Weber make for some of his most appealing and characteristic music and of the early Nineteenth century repertoire, reminding the listener of Weber’s special love for the clarinet. Janet Hilton certainly demonstrates with these performances that she is part of the tradition of great clarinettists who have performed Weber’s challenging works, overcoming the technical tangles seemingly effortlessly and with great warmth of tone.

Her outstanding performances of these rare works are presented in the only available complete collection, and offered for the bargain price of one mid-price disc.

This CD is also released as MP3.

From the very first notes, it is apparent that these performances will be top rate. The orchestra is excellent and sets the stage for a grand entrance by Hilton… Hilton plays delicately and sweetly, and Keith Swallow accompanies the way every musician would like his accompanist to play.

Hilton’s performances, Järvi’s accompaniment, and Chandos’s excellent recording combine to provide a satisfying musical experience.
