Review quote

Baron captures the dark Brahms sound with doubled clarinets, horns, and bassoons playing in the low and middle registers throughout the piece, which was composed for piano but here is scored for pairs of flutes, oboes, clarinets, horns, and bassoons and a contrabassoon. The first clarinet introduces the simple aria and 25 variations follow before the horns introduce the fugue. The Instrumentalist, October 2005 The wind instruments redress the issue of balance in the original version and present a fairer opposition to the piano, allowing the pianist to play freely, which brings the performing elements into better balance. The Clarinet: Quintessence, March 2007show more
