Hi Michael,

Wich recording are you referring to?
The 1999 recording Leister, Boetcher and Bognár (Nimbus NI 5600) is (IMHO)
everything but boring, and should be in every clarinettists library, as a
possible interpretation, freedom of tempi, articulation and tone quality
(Mr. Leister is a man above 60 years on this recording!!)...
(on this CD are also the two clarinet sonata).

One of my beloved CD´s nowadays for the trio mainly!
