Clarinet Concerto No. 2 in E flat Major, Op. 74

Clarinet Quintet in B flat major, Op. 34, J182

version for string orchestra


In early 1811 Carl Maria von Weber met the brilliant clarinettist Heinrich Bärmann in Darmstadt. Their relationship produced the Concertino in E flat major and then the concertos in F minor and E flat. The Clarinet Quintet, a similarly inventive work, was first heard in 1815. Sabine Meyer brings her consummate artistry to all four of these creative, engaging and often dazzling pieces of early Romanticism.

“Fröst just may be the finest clarinetist (sic) alive, and this entire production is typical of what we have come to expect from BIS…There is no more exciting label around today” Classics Today

“The Swedish clarinettist Martin Fröst plays with admirable virtuosity and smoothness of tone, and it’s hard to imagine the music better performed.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2007 *****

“Martin Fröst's style of playing is well suited to Weber: he has a clear, fresh tone and fingers undefeated by even the most sensational of the applause music that ends some of these works.
He is not afraid of considerable tempo variations within a movement, as Weber is on record as having wanted.
This all contributes to a charming, eloquent performance of the Concertino. However, the F minor Concerto (No 1) does not need its opening Allegro to be taken quite so fast for it to make its points, and the finale, here sounding like a brisk allegro verging on presto, is actually marked Allegretto, which gives the music more space and freedom. The slow movements of both concertos are played simply, without affectation, and Fröst remembers that the alla polacca of the finale of No 2 is a dance. He takes a bright lead in the Quintet; it is played here as a concerto with full strings, which is a pity but, given the quatuor concertant nature of the work, not as disastrous as it would be with Mozart. This is a fresh, amiable performance that responds to the music's varied nature.
Fröst also plays some cadenzas of his own, rejecting those which were later added by Carl Baermann, son of the much-admired dedicatee of the works, Heinrich Baermann. He further adds a few flourishes: unnecessarily, but there is no need to be too purist here. These are attractive, exhilarating performances, clearly recorded so as to do justice to the orchestral effects which were always part of Weber's exuberant invention.”

Horn Concertino in E minor, Op. 45

Stephen Stirling (horn)


On this disc, the exclusive Chandos artist, Michael Collins, plays the clarinet in three works for clarinet and orchestra by Weber, as well as conducting the City of London Sinfonia. The disc also includes Weber’s horn concertino, featuring the soloist Stephen Stirling.

The two concertos and the concertino for clarinet and orchestra are considered among the repertoire cornerstones for today’s clarinettists. Weber wrote the works for his personal friend Heinrich Bärmann, the principal clarinettist of the Munich court orchestra, whose own embellishments of the works (changes of articulation, extra grace notes, and even an added accompanied cadenza in the first concerto) have been incorporated in the performances recorded here. Michael Collins suggests that these changes ‘do not make the music any easier to play, but they do make it more thrilling’.

Each of the works displays a well-balanced mix of virtuosity, daring, humour, and sheer beauty, and throughout, the role of the orchestra is much more than a mere accompaniment. The woodwind solos, a trio of horns, blaring trumpets, and dashing violins contribute greatly to making these works so captivating.

Written in 1806, when Weber was just nineteen years old, the virtuosic Horn Concertino pushed known horn techniques to new limits, requiring the soloist among other feats to produce a ‘four-note chord’, the technique known as multiphonics. The work is today considered a gem in the horn repertoire, and our soloist, Stephen Stirling, is ‘a player gifted with the utmost sensitivity and imagination, which is shown through the beautiful way he shapes musical phrases and the extraordinary range of colours he employs’ – in the words of the late Richard Hickox.

“Collins, acting as both soloist and conductor, offers dazzling performances that make use of the elaborations Baermann made to the clarinet part. He is equally at home in the intimate lyricism of Weber's slow movement as he is in the brilliance of the writing elsewhere...[Stirling] rises to the challenge of the extreme technical demands [of the Concertino]” BBC Music Magazine, March 2012 *****

“straightforward and sunny - bright and playful performances of the clarinet works (Michael Collins conducts himself) and Stephen Stirling evidently enjoying himself in the Horn Concertino and its tricky cadenza.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2012

“At first listening this might not seem to be the most sheerly virtuosic playing on the market, partly because Collins does not restrict himself to what he can do smoothly, his dynamic range or his staccato speed just past their safe limit when his sense of the music's drama requires it...It is hardly self-evident that a new release of these famiiar works will find something new to say” International Record Review, February 2012

“Collins directs the orchestra as well as dispatching the solo parts with wit and aplomb, and he also takes charge of the accompaniment to Stephen Stirling's performance of Weber's Concertino for horn, a piece that inevitably sounds rather staid alongside the glittering clarinet works.” The Guardian, 25th January 2012 ****

Karl–Heinz Steffens (clarinet)

Bamberger Symphoniker, Radoslaw Szulc

The brilliant clarinettist Karl-Heinz Steffens has been a principal member of the Berliner Philharmoniker for many years. Here he performs exciting romantic repertoire with “soulful torrents of melody.” The Bamberg Symphony Orchestra’s recent Mahler cycle has received excellent reviews.

“the soloist's tone, dynamics and tuning are compellingly subtle. It's a very German dark Wald ('wood') and there are demons in it as well as clowns.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2012

“These are impeccably prepared performances, technically excellent, with spotless intonation and Germanic tone at its finest...Although this is undeniably brilliant playing there is no flashiness here, Steffens relying on evenness of tone and technique to make his points. It may seem old-fashioned and to some extent it is: this is above all for listeners seeking a dependable account of these pillars of the clarinet repertoire, beautifully played” International Record Review, January 2012
