Extending the realm of clarinets in improvisation, the trio of three German clarinetists--Katharina Bohlen, Reinald Noisten, and Claudius Reimann--perform on clarinet and bass clarinet with a diverse set of approaches, opening their 12 movement work with a trio of bass clarinets, and then permuting bass, b-flat clarinets and sax with remarkable technique.



"For all music lovers who are looking for something out of the ordinary in the mainstream, the label Creative Sources has something very special with long clarinets - short stories. In this production the two bass clarinets of the "Katharina Bohlen / Claudius Reimann Duo" are supplemented by another one. And not just anyone. For top-class reinforcement, the Ruhrgebiet duo has brought the Wuppertal clarinettist Reinald Noisten (Ensemble Noisten) on board. The result can be heard. Their huge clarinets groove, hum and creak in twelve musical short stories. Occasionally, a symphonic gong joins in, impressively stirring the depths of the woodwind instruments with penetrating sound; somewhere wipe meditation and departure. - Long clarints - short stories, or "Three bass clarinets tell short stories" appears on the Creative Sources label."-Kunstmelder, translated by Google
