Today we celabrate the 50th aniversary of Sabine Meyer, one of the great clarinetists of our time. Since I've started playing classical repertoire for clarinet I've been listening to her recordings, especially the one on Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, for EMI Classics in which she plays a Basset horn.
However, sometimes her playing is a bit "technical", very characteristic of the "German technique" which happens in Copland's Clarinet Concerto. But, despite that she's an exellent player with a series of great recordings on her collections.
Definetly a "must to" listen in the repertoire for clarinet artists.
