Copland: Music for The Theater, Music for Movies, Clarinet Concerto - The Orchestra of St. Luke's, William Blount, Dennis Russell Davies


In terms of sheer elegance the first movement of the Clarinet concerto - written for the legendary Benny Goodman - has seldom sounded so beguiling. Although Blount gives a low-key performance with an unshowy cadenza I found myself warming to his unassuming approach. --MusicWeb International
