ArtistsVladimir Soltan (clarinet)
Utrecht String Quartet
The Clarinet Quintet is Max Regerís last completed composition; he survived the mailing of the manuscript to his publisher by only a few days. Paul Hindemithís contribution to the same genre was written a few years later and is the daring work of a young iconoclast.
While Reger orientates himself on the great models Mozart and Brahms, whose quintets are still setting standards today, Hindemith rather refers to the tradition of the Divertimento. If Regerís work is laid out in classical four-movements, Hindemith presents five parts, whereby the last movement forms a note for note mirror-image version of the first.
Vladimir Soltan, together with the Utrecht String Quartet, also manages this artistic balancing act with great mastery. The young Belarusian clarinettist is able to plumb the depths of the old work as well as to implement the carefree freshness of the new. Lovingly balanced and captured in ultra-fine Super Audio CD technology, this new production is also a delight in terms of sound.
