The works on this album span almost 30 years, from 1965 to 1994. The most striking factor is the varying yet equally successful approach adopted in writing for the clarinet by these very different composers, all of whom cater for the unique character of the instrument.

                     Performance *****           Sound *****
“The performances are superlative in every way and should place this duo firmly in the front rank of contemporary music interpreters. In much of the music of this period, the formidable technical and intellectual demands placed on players can often produce sterile and cerebral results, yet here the clear understanding of form and structure is combined with genuine passion for the medium. Kate Romano’s playing throughout is exemplary, displaying both stunning technical prowess and a real flair for the dramatic potential of these works. “  
 
Tim Payne - BBC Music Magazine
 

“Not just a collection of clarinet works, but a well-devised retrospective of British music over three decades. Romano is an accomplished and sympathetic advocate, not least in her informative booklet notes.” 
 
Richard Whitehouse - Gramophone magazine
