The Lyrical Clarinet

“It's hard to imagine this varied programme better played than by Collins and Michael McHale. They're technically impeccable and stylistically flexible, and, aided by an unobtrusively excellent recording, they both produce some beautiful pianissimo playing.” --BBC Music Magazine, April 2011 *****

“This disc, in all the varied items, again demonstrates the magnetism and sheer beauty of his playing, whatever the idiom...a fine recital, vividly recorded to match the inspiration of the playing.” --Gramophone Magazine, May 2011

“Collins plays [the Five Bagatelles] with much affection...overall I enjoyed these performances greatly.” --International Record Review, March 2011

“A highly engaging programme from Michael Collins, whose rare combination of tonal mellifluousness and virtuoso flair brings a satisfying unity to a wide range of styles.” --Classic FM Magazine, April 2011 ****
