Extraordinary clarinetist Sean Osborn presents his fourth recording on Albany Records.

This recording is a short tour of some of the most important works in the development of the clarinet as a stand-alone instrument along with two new works by composer/clarinetist Sean Osborn that build on the works that came before. Sean Osborn has traveled the world as soloist and chamber musician, and during his 11 years with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. He has also appeared as guest principal clarinet with the New York Philharmonic, Pittsburgh Symphony, Seattle Symphony, and the American Symphony Orchestra. The New York Times dubbed him “...an excellent clarinetist,” the Boston Globe called him “...a miracle,” and Gramophone “...a master.” With more than 40 concertos in his repertoire, Sean has also recorded dozens of CDs for London, Deutsche Grammophon, Sony, CRI, and others, as well as premiering works by John Adams, John Corigliano, Chen Yi, and Phillip Glass to name a few. Sean has performed at many festivals including Marlboro, Seattle Chamber Music, Aspen, Zagreb Bienalle, Pacific Rims, and Colorado. He is also an award-winning composer whose works have been played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and members of the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, Marlboro Music Festival, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic among others. His other recordings for Albany Records include Cyrille Rose’s 32 Etudes; the Mozart Clarinet Quintet and Quartet; and a disc of music by American composers.

Review:
“Osborn plays with great energy and personality, and his technical command is second to none. His blazing fingers can handle any passage, his dynamic range runs from the inau-dible to the shrieking, and his catalog of extended techniques is vast and impressive.” (American Record Guide)
