"Martin Fröst is as fine a clarinettist as anyone alive today, and he teams up with two equally superb colleagues in presenting exceptional performances of these three chestnuts of the chamber-music-with-winds repertoire."

"Blandness is something one could certainly never accuse Martin Fröst, Roland Pöntinen and Torleif Thedéen (all artists I admire enormously) of ... this fine disc deserves a firm recommendation for sweeping away the cobwebs off scores that can on occasion appear to settle too cosily into ’old pipe and slippers’ mode."
International Record Review - February 2006
"In the two sonatas, [Fröst] is perfectly matched by his compatriot Roland Pöntinen in performances which capture Brahms’serious, autumnal mood without undue heaviness: the way they drift with apparently telepatic understanding through the opening of the E flat Sonata is especially memorable, but entirely characteristic."

CD of the Week
"[Fröst’s] smooth, even tone is deliciously seductive, and he can darken or lighten the sound at will, from velvet warmth with a sensitively applied vibrato, to a soaring clarity that never goes louder than lovely, as they say ... I could write more, but if you’ll excuse me, I’d rather like to be seduced all over again."
