Haydn House CD
not particularly pretty.... harsh tone, peculiar vibato
From 1956 to 1973 De Peyer (1826 - 2017) was principal
clarinet of the London Symphony Orchestra.
Had a long post concert conversation with him about
working with Kenneth Wilkinson of London/Decca and
Bob Fine of Mercury (Dorati recordings) Very informative.
His Mozart Clarinet Concerto recording, under Peter
Maag/LSO, is spectacular. It is also on Youtube.
