Jean-Marc Fessard plays the Cadenza with a great culture, delicate humor sometimes joking.

The quality of the recording is the precision and the kindness of the soloist play.

The Cantilenes find with him an excellent musician.

The Concerto for clarinet livened up and lived by the clarinet inspired by Jean-Marc Fessard, is anyway enough to justify this new recording volume.

One surprising fact about both the Concerto and the Concertino is that this is the first time they have been recorded—a shame on clarinettists and music labels everywhere, but credit to Naxos and the performers on this CD for recognising this fine music and recording it for posterity.

Laurent Decker and especially Jean-Marc Fessard—who was also the clarinettist on Naxos 8.570235 (review link above)—likewise deserve praise for their own fine performances.

The quality of sound is excellent, the booklet nicely detailed, and the picture on the cover is…the picture on the cover. A quality disc for a quality composer.
