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.
