    Do not forget the Krommer: Clarinet Quartet, excellent!

    At this level (Mozart and Brahms) I don`t think you can rate one over an another. How ever I think the slow movement of the Mozart is the most beautiful bit of chamber music that he composed. I would put that movement and the slow movements of the Schubert Quintet and Borodin Qt#2 as the most beautiful chamber music that I know.

    In his book, "Clarinet," Brymer lists Bliss (with high praise), Brahms, Coleridge-Taylor, Cooke, Hindemith, Gordon Jacob, Mozart, Reger and Weber. Note - the book is from the 1970s.

    That's a bit extreme.
    Weber's great strength was opera - but his clarinet works do exude quality and are worth listening to.

    Wikipedia lists 30 or so (link). Even so, it missed the one by Aho (available on BIS).

    The Weber works are entertaining showcases for the clarinet, and compared with pianist or violinists, we have very few of them.

    For Mozart I discovered recently this rendition, which very fast became a favorite.




    I don´thave a favorite recording for the Brahms.
    I enjoy Reger's and Hindemith's quintets as well.

    My favorite in the genre, next to the Brahms, is probably Golijov's powerful and astounding The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind. Otherwise, my knowledge of clarinet quintets is limited to just a few others.

    I have the Berliner recording as well. Bought it at full price when first issued on Teldec.

    Weber's clarinet works are among the most difficult in the repertoire. If you can play the clarinet concertos and the concertino convincingly, you are a master of the instrument.
    When you don't know what you're saying, you take a long time to say it. When you know what you're saying, you get pithy.
