"It should be obvious that there cannot be many recording out there devoted to a recital on the e-flat clarinet. Now, I can almost hear a cynic out there saying, "Well, even one is one too many!" O ye of little faith: cast away your doubts! The hearing of this disc will persuade you that a CD's worth of music for the smallest member of the clarinet family is indeed well worth an hour of your time.…Elizabeth Crawford is a fine artist, playing with impeccable intonation and technique, an possessed of a vivid musical imagination. Her collaborator in two of the works, pianist Lori Rhoden, likewise plays with precision and élan. The recorded sound is very natural and present.…" (Fanfare)
