I think his recording of the Corigliano Concerto is magnificent, so it's from that p. As a clarinetist, I'm reluctant to criticize ANY clarinetist who is capable of performing this piece at all, so despite a few stylistic issues, I Stanley Drucker - John Corigliano / Samuel Barber - Concerto For Clarinet And Orchestra / Third Essay For Orchestra Drucker's performance still deserves 5 stars.
My main complaint is that Drucker seems to rip through the technical material with little regard for the expressive qualities of the writing. There are some spots, like the opening runs of the 1st movement, which should be played as fast as possible, but many other passages should I think be played with more attention to the expressive qualities of the writing. Don't get me Opus 47 (CD, they should still be played quickly, but Drucker occassionaly sounds almost robotic whereas Stotlzman makes much more of the "cadenza" feel of the playing in these sections.
Also, I felt that the 2nd movement was played a little quickly. Drucker's tempo is probably closer than Stoltzmans to the tempo written in the score, so Drucker's may be more "correct". However, I feel that the slower tempo taken by Stoltzman intensifies the painful, desolate nature of the movement.
The 3rd movement is well done, but I feel that the quasi-cadenza section near the end which follows the timpani solos is similarly ripped through too quickly. That being said, the recording is also good in many ways.
The orchestral writing in the concerto is brilliant, with many solos for various instruments. I heard many different things coming from this orchestra than on Stoltzman's recordings. Obviously, neither is right. It's just interesting to hear both orchestra's interpretation of the very difficult orchestral part. While I prefer Stoltzman's rendition, it's' valuable to hear the piece played by the orchestra and soloist it was written for.
Drucker's rendition is probably closer to Corigliano's original intentions as it was written with him in mindand for this reason, it's a valuable recording. Another small thing though I always enjoy this The CD contains excellent program notes and interviews with the composers which are particularly interesting. This CD is very good. While you probably won't be blown away, you certainly won't be disappointed either.
Written for one such as Drucker, this performance is awesome, as it demonstrates the skill of both instrumentalist, composer, conductor and orchestra. As the liner notes state, Bernstein at one of first rehersals expressed the difficulty of it, but came through with marvelous performance of it. It showcases virtuoso skills of orchestra as well, with marvelous antiphonal element in second movement, as well as neat tymp parts.
This is all climaxed by showcase Toccata, highlighting the exhilirating play of both clarinetist and orchestra. Listening to this grows on one. Barber's final composition was this. This neo-romantic style goes well on the heels of such as Corigliano.
