I could not be more proud of my debut CD, and especially proud for this review.
“Mr Jonason appears to combine the brilliant extended techniques, the interest in recent repertoire, and indeed the rock star pizazz required to get the gig.”
“To my ears this clarinet concerto is the best example from [Christian Lindberg] I’ve heard to date – and that’s saying something!”
“…this disc provides a first-class introduction to the dazzling artistry of a brilliant clarinet talent, and provides further evidence of Christian Lindberg’s growing compositional mastery.”
” Jonason plays it to the hilt, seemingly as far gone in places as Lindberg. There’s a great deal of fun to be had if you’re happy to go along with the helter-skelter twists and turns, chiaroscuro emotions and volte-face shifts in mood.”
“This album is a showcase for the virtuosity of Swedish clarinetist Emil Jonason, who displays phenomenal technique and an ability to exude excitement in everything he plays.”
