Carl Maria von Weber
Concerto for clarinet and orchestra No. 1 in F minor Op. 73
Concerto for clarinet and orchestra No. 2 in E flat major Op. 74
Clarinet quintett in B flat major Op. 34

Russian Chamber Philharmonic St.Petersburg
Juri Gilbo, conductor
Fabio Di Càsola, clarinet

 


“Fabio di Càsola's performances are dazzling and Juri Gilbo's persuasive partnership in slow movements is romantic in the best Weberian operatic style. The twirly-whirly Menuetto capriccio of the arranged Quintet is deliciously done, and the closing gioioso is wonderfully infectious.”
Gramophone Magazine


“The Russian Chamber Philharmonic St Petersburg have the character of a group of individual virtuosi all playing as one. Juri Gilbo’s direction is secure without ever getting in the way: his reading seems designed to echo Weber’s famous inspiration from nature, freeing the music to evoke landscapes and, indeed, whole worlds.”
