About

Testifying to the multi-facetted talent of Martin Fröst as well as to the different responses that the clarinet has awakened in composers over the years, the present compilation brings together four concertante works in recordings that have all been previously released on separate discs.

The opening work, Fröst’s fellow-Swede Anders Hillborg’s Peacock Tales, is the longest of the four, as well as being something of a calling card for Fröst - it was composed specifically for him in 1998.

Bernhard Crusell, active during the beginning of the 19th century, is today mainly known for his clarinet concertos and clarinet quartets. Here Martin Fröst’s clarinet jauntily guides us through one of his earliest works: Introduction, Theme and Variations on a Swedish Air – the air in question being a drinking song popular at the time.
