Clarinet Chamber Music by Hindemith
John Bruce Yeh, clarinet
Easley Blackwood, piano
Amelia Piano Trio
Cedille Records CDR 90000 072

"You will look in vain for faults on this gorgeous new album of Hindemith clarinet chamber music.... Yeh is brilliant in everything, as is the sparkling, always-engaging playing of Easley Blackwood. The sound lacks nothing. This is somewhat of a landmark release and can't be ignored." (American Record Guide)

"A very distinguished release, one that even those who normally avoid Hindemith, and especially his chamber music, very easily could come to relish." (
