Brahms: Works for Clarinet

Brahms: Works for Clarinet

During the 1890s, inspired by the playing of Richard Mühlfeld, Brahms entered an Indian summer of composition for the clarinet that gave the world these three masterpieces. Joseph Shiner, a fast-rising star of the clarinet world, plays the two sonatas with a winning lyricism and eloquence, and has the complete measure of their autumnal glow. Somi Kim is a fine piano partner, never overwhelming the clarinet. With cellist Yoanna Prodanova, we are given the Clarinet Trio, a work with plenty of drama that they embrace fully, everything ebbing and flowing with effortless control.
