"Never, surely, has Kjell
Fageus played with greater expression, greater understanding and more revealing
intensity. The music is Wonderful! There are eight Swedish compositions
here, most of them premiered by Kjell Fageus and/or dedicated to him. Several
of these Swedish works, then, are recorded here for the first time. But
this excellent record also includes some of the most important works of
the international clarinet repetoire. Stravinsky's three pieces from 1919.
Malcom Arnold's sparkling Fantasy, the clarinet movement from Messiaen's
Quartet for the End of Time and Debussy's Syrinx (which was written for
the flute but really works quite well on the clarinet). Go for it."
