'The master took interest in his warm performing manner, his beautiful tone with its flexibility in all registers, his breath-control and the musical phrasing it enabled.' - Christian Muhlfeld recalls Brahms response to his brother Richards clarinet playing. The clarinettist of the Meiningen court orchestra impressed the almost 60 year-old, retired symphonist to such an extent that the latter arose from his creative lethargy, went back to work and composed several pieces featuring the clarinet that same year. We catch a glimpse of Brahms beguilement through the pages of the first Muhlfeld-inspired creation: the Trio opus 114. Throughout its four parts, Brahms makes the most of the clarinets registers: the upper echelon combining power with brilliance, the lower boasting a range of ambers suited to grand melodic gestures, the middle harbouring an energy with potential for vigorous figuration, rhythmic vitality and dance-like dash. "Steven Kanoff is a clarinettist who succeeds admirably in making his instrument a powerful, as well as a beautiful, one." - New York Times
