Tansman: Clarinet Concerto, Concertino, 6 Movements For Strings / Blaszczyk, Fessard, Decker
The performances are quite good. Both wind soloists have attractive timbres and the strings play crisply and cleanly (save for a few screechy bits that seem to be more Tansman's fault). The engineering, though, balances the two soloists much too far forward, making soft playing impossible and capturing way too much clicking of keys. Forewarned is forearmed, so keep this in mind before you decide to sample this otherwise intriguing disc.
