 Re: Marcellus's Mozart

I heard it and didn't like it that much. His technique is phenominal. And in the last movement he takes such a quick tempo that to me it almost sounds like the strings are having to work hard to keep up to his tempo! Superb technique, but I too didn't hear as much phrasing or didn't get any feeling from his playing. He played the dynamics, but it didn't sound very personal to me.

I'm thinking that maybe because of his quick tempo he wasn't able to embelish or put as much feeling into each phrase. I know when I had to play it for juries, I tried to do slight crescendos and tried to lead to the high point of a phrase and then slighlty decrease in volume and intensity till the beginning of a new phrase. But I was taking it much MUCH slower than he did.

But wow is he a master of the instrument. I never thought someone could tongue that fast or play that piece so quickly and flawlessy. I'm sure he was an excellent clarinet player overall, and I definitely would like to hear more of him, but I don't find this particular recording to be "all that and a bag of chips" either.
