'Simple Gifts' Aaron Copland
The brilliant young clarinettist tackles one of the world's favourite concertos.
One of a small handful of truly international wind players, Martin Fröst is hugely in demand throughout the world, whether performing concertos especially written for him or core repertoire such as the pieces presented on this new album.
This all-Mozart collection includes a beautiful recording of the famous Clarinet Concerto, performed alongside the German Chamber Orchestra of Bremen. But there's also a chance to hear the less well-known Trio for Clarinet, Viola and Piano and the Allegro in B flat major for Clarinet and String Quartet.
