I heard him live at the Proms a couple of years ago, in the Messiaen Quartet
for the End of Time, and he is truly a remarkable player.

Subject: [kl] Clarinetist Martin Frost

Last night I heard a radio performance of the first movement of K. 622 by
the young Swedish clarinetist Martin Frost. It was a magnificent performance
with the Amsterdam Sinfonia. Absolutely knocked me out.

It was a bit fussy on one over-elaborate occasion (in the second Eingang),
but the good qualities so overshadowed his few infelicities, that I am
awestruck by his exceptional playing. He played a basset clarinet, and he
improvised here and there, thereby making his performance of the concerto
quite unique.

I have been out of the clarinet business for long enough not to know who is
coming up, but some of you will probably know him better than my one
movement experience.

That guy can play very well, though I can't say too much more without more
experience. I believe that he holds the position of guest professor at the
Swedish Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
