 Stoltzman's Sound
Author: paul

I just heard another set of music by Stoltzman today on classical radio. What a fantastic and well balanced sound! As everyone in the clarinet world already knows, Mr. Stoltzman sets a very high standard of excellence for classical music performance on the clarinet.

I can understand the altissimo tone and sound being akin to that of the flute, which is well understood and expected from clarinetists. Mr. Stoltzman can hit the highs smoothly and softly, so they sound just like a flute. Very sweet indeed. I can understand the depth and richness of the chalemeau, which in Mr. Stoltzman's case is absolutely exquisite. Kind of like enjoying a very dark rich chocolate. Both are very deep, rich, and quite satisfying to the soul. However, I believe I heard some clarion notes that sounded amazingly like a harmonica. Now, that's truly different to me. Now, keep in mind that I'm only an adult novice and I've just started listening (an actively studying type of listening) to classical music on a good stereo radio recently. So, hearing the clarinet sounding very much like a harmonica is new to me.

My question is this. How did Mr. Stolzman create the harmonica-like sound? What brand and type of horn and set-up does he use for recordings? Is this an example of polyphonics that folks talk about every now and then on this BBS? If so, how is this created?
