A must for anyone who loves the clarinet.

Clarinet trio CDs aren't the most mainstream kind of CDs around. However there are always clarinetists like the distinguished artists from Chicago performing on this recording who are always searching for fun, interesting new music to perform. The music was selected with these criteria in mind and the hope is the listeners will find the "fun" in this music -- four works of which were written specifically for this ensemble.

Review:
"...this represents the state of the art in clarinet playing, and I can't imagine another disc of multiple clarinets coming close. And, by the way, the music is terrific, to. ...[The Chicago Clarinet Trio]could play from a phone book and it would sound beguiling. It would be a pity if they let much time pass before they commission pieces from the best names in the business. If composers gave this disc a listen, i can't possibly imagine a refusal." (Fanfare)
