On the strength of his fine musicianship, his unusually inspiring and often unconventional performances and a long series of highly acclaimed recordings, Martin Fröst has become recognized as one of today’s most interesting wind-players.

Martin Fröst’s latest offering consists of the three concertos by Bernhard Henrik Crusell, the almost exact contemporary of Weber. Crusell developed a reputation on the continent as one of the greatest virtuosos on the clarinet, and his three concertos were printed by prestigious publishing houses in Leipzig. Charming and spirited, these works also make great demands on the performer.

BBC Music Magazine

March 2009

*****

“The Swedish clarinettist Martin Fröst plays… with flawless technique, considerable panache and moments of magical quiet tone. The Gothenburg under Kamu provides first-rate support, with the wind principals clearly relishing their moments of prominence…”

Gramophone Magazine

April 2009

“Okko Kamu provides lively and supportive accompaniments; Martin Fröst has the full measure of this delightful music and ably scales the virtuoso roulades, while often playing the lyrical tunes on their reprise very gently and touchingly. The bravura pyrotechnics of the finales are presented with aplomb.”

Penguin Guide

2011 edition

“Here is another example of a largely unknown composer who has been revived through recordings of his music.”
