Birmingham Post Review for Emma Johnson & Friends

The Birmingham Post gives ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to Emma Johnson & Friends new recording

“Emma Johnson is in fine form. The [Beethoven Septet’s] serenade-like slow movement is graceful and the alla marcia finale’s acceleration into a full-tilt presto is irresistible. Joseph Küffner’s Introduction, Theme and Variations (once attributed to Weber) is a jolly piece in which Johnson is joined by bassist Chris West and the Carducci Quartet. Clarinet and quartet perform two sparkling Strauss transcriptions Frühlingsstimmen (“Voices of Spring”) and Perpetuum mobile as encores – a fine end to a fun concert.”
