There’s a staggering virtuosity to the compositions here, and Hartig brings a primal energy to her interpretations of these solo pieces for clarinet,most of them by composers I’m unfamiliar with. There’s such a vitality and edge to the music, all enveloped by Hartig’s amazingly warm clarinet sound. There’s a melodic and rhythmic vocabulary here that I feel really close to, and parallels much of the language of modern improvisers. (Chalumeau, Centaur Records #2965)
