One Response to “December 31, 2012 – January 4, 2013: Strings Plus One”

  1. Steven Finell says:

    Bill McGlaughlin has superb taste in music and performers. In the Mozart and Brahms clarinet quintets on the Strings Plus One series, he took the unusual step of playing a different recording, with different ensembles and soloists, for each movement. That was a brilliant way to illuminate these two masterworks of the chamber music repetoire. And, as always, he chose the best of the best ensembles and clarinetists (but where is Richard Stoltzman?). Thanks, Bill!
