Südwestdeutsches Kammerorchester Pforzheim, Sebastian Tewinkel (dir.)
Ignaz Pleyel's Clarinet Concertos are among his most important compositions. His double Clarinet Concerto, the Sinfonia Concertante, demonstrates how he was able to exploit the whole palette of the instrument with splendid teamwork by Dieter Klöcker and Sandra Arnold, who have performed together several times before.
“[Dieter Klöcker] cultivates a smooth and focused sonority, impeccable intonation, superb breath control, and effortless facility.” Classics Today on a previous release by Dieter Klöcker and Sandra Arnold
