Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826): Clarinet Quintet in B flat major, Op. 34
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791): Clarinet Quintet in A major, K581
'There was some especially sensitive pianissimo moments from the players in the operatically dramatic slow movement'.
Collins' 'virtuosic command was without doubt, but also the variety of tone was impressive, from the bright upper reaches right down to the rich depths'.
'A beautifully warm performance, with close communication from all and evident joy on Collins’ face'.
'The finale was a joy from beginning to end, and Judith Busbridge’s viola solo in the slow minor variation was heartfelt, with a gorgeously rich tone'.
