Direct to DSD

In this new recording of Brahms amazingly warm and expressive Clarinet  Trio in A minor Op. 114 and Clarinet Quintet in B minor Op. 115, are the works presented with great personnel feeling, passion, drama and deep intimacy. The works where performed at a concert in Stockholm, at the Royal Academy of Music during a Brahms/Reger festival in 2002, where Kjell Fagéus together with Bengt Forsberg on piano, Mats Lidström Cello and The Tale String Quartet in 3 concerts performed the complete chamber music for Clarinet by these two composers. From the 3rd and last of these concerts is the recording of the Clarinet quintet, recorded “live” with a very quiet concert audience. The Trio was recorded in the same venue, but without an audience.
