Description: These are all display pieces by a virtuoso Italian clarinettist-composer, the concertos (from 1827 and 1830 also notable for their pathos-laden slow movements) early pieces, the operatic potpourris from 1843 and 1862. We're in Dieter Klöcker territory here, which is fitting since Porgo was one of his students! Giuseppe Porgo (clarinet), North German Philharmonic Rostock; Johannes Moesus.
