TheaterJones.com‘s Auxiliary Input critic reviews David Shifrin‘s new recording of music by Carl Nielsen and finds more than expected:
“This recording is … perfect in every respect. It’s mostly, if not completely, a live recording (and I’m learning to love these). You hear performers breathing, you hear key clicks and valve action—in short, you get all the performance artifacts that make good recordings so enjoyable, and live recordings so lively. The best thing about it is David Shifrin. He’s the best part of the ‘perfect in every respect.’ He musters the full spectrum of colors possible for a clarinet, from sine-wave purity to hairy, rough-edged humanity.”Andrew Anderson, TheaterJones.com
