By Johannes Brahms - Martin Fröst, Torleif Thedeen & Roland Pöntinen. Fröst at his best yet! I find it rather funny that, just a few weeks after thinking to myself that Anthony McGill's new Brahms recording is the best I have ever heard, I am now confronted with a brand new Fröst recording which, as usual, confounds me. As usual, the sound quality is the best in the business. I've never heard strings crisper in the Quintet. However, I believe Fröst's presence is a little too dominant in the Quintet

Given how well Fröst interacts with his ensembles and accompanist here,.
Johannes Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet is core repertoire, not just for clarinettists but also in the entire chamber music genre. As such, it has been on Martin Fröst’s ‘to-be-recorded list’ for a long time, and when he gathered a dream-team of string players for a concert in Stockholm in February 2013, it was the perfect opportunity for BIS to organize a recording session. Brahms’s Quintet was written in 1891 by a composer who only a year previously had renounced composing, but whose creative urge had been reawakened by his encounter with the leading clarinettist of the time, Richard Mühlfeld
Profile: Swedish clarinetist, born 14 December 1970 in Sundsvall, Sweden.
Martin Fröst - Roots (2015/2016). All the music that is performed on the album – apart from the Crusell – is a kind of reincarnation of the original, whether it be a transcription, variation or a new setting that has come about through an improvisation. Afterall, music is nomadic and its roots have spread over thousands of years through different continents and cultures taking on new shapes as it travels and evolves.
