Weber wind concertos

cornoprimo

This is a magnificent album and illustrates well how playing standards have developed in recent years. 40 years ago when I was a student, the horn concertino was considered almost unplayable and we had only two OK-ish recordings to listen to. Alec Frank-Gemmill not only leaps every technical hurdle in the score but does so with nonchalance and style. What's more, he finds time to add perfect little embellishments on the repeats and also to make the multiphonics in the cadenza actually worth listening to - his version of the cadenza is more interesting than what is actually written. The clarinet and bassoon concertos are also very fine. Although I've heard livelier versions of the bassoon concerto, this one scores in the wonderful clarity of the playing. With so many recordings of the clarinet concertos in the catalogue, it's just a shame that we could not have had the rather rarer Andante and Hungarian Rondo for bassoon.
