Great clarinet recordings 2

Johannes Brahms->
Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115->
Karl Leister- Clarinet with the Amadeus Quartet->

Beauty of tone and sustain. Wonderful interpretation by all including one of my favorite string quartets
This quintet is one of the greatest pieces of chamber music ever written. In this recording it is played with great affection by Karl Leister who's clarinet tone has been the model to aspire to for many players. It seems that for many years North American players were aiming for this tone on their mostly french instruments. (myself included which is why I play Selmer Recitals).

Many think of Leister as having the definitive German clarinet tone. In fact at the time is was not considered to be traditional clarinet tone by other German players.
This  LP recording Deutsche Grammophon 139354 was recorded in the 60's. It is still available on various Cd's  combined with other pieces( Cd's being longer)
