"There's plenty of lively, affectionate musicianship in these performances - all warmly and intimately recorded."
***** Five Stars BBC Music Magazine (Aug 2001)
This unfamiliar repertoire will be welcomed by all who love the clarinet in a chamber music setting but only ever hear the Mozart and Brahms Quintets. Thea King introduces the pieces to the listener with her customary sensitive and fluid playing and the Britten Quartet is on top form.
