Ok this is just a question because I am genuinely curious. And maybe =
the "DIEHARD" Buffet lovers out there can answer this? When listening to =
Alessandro Carbonare 's recordings of the Brahms/Mozart quintets, I =
noticed a lot of intonation problems when he entered into soft passages =
and when he went really high into the altissimo register. Could this be =
anything to do with the "make" of his clarinet Selmer, or could this =
just be simple problems that we all have no matter what the clarinet and =
playing with other instrument families. We all know we come in sharp =
when soft and we get flat when we get loud. I am not trying to suggest =
that Selmers don't play in tune but I have heard that all clarinets =
lines such as Buffet, Yamaha, Leblanc, and Selmer, have there troubling =
characteristics. Anyone with this CD could answer this if they have =
heard it. Just a thought!! Thanks.
