Label: Phoenix Edition
Description: Check your shelves for this repertoire. There's little current competition on disc but Johann's work (the first-ever clarinet concerto) is not unknown while Carl's concerto has had its day on disc. The orchestral quartet is useful to collectors of early "symphonies" and the age of these period instrument recordings makes them somewhat "historical" in their own right. Hans Deinzer, Jann Engel (clarinets), Cappella Coloniensis; Gabrielle Ferro, Ulf Björlin (orch. qt.). Original 1982 and 1983 Capriccio recordings.
