Robert Plane gives a very fine reading [of Finzi Clarinet Concerto] for Naxos

From “Which is the best recording of Finzi’s Clarinet Concerto?” by Patrick Rucker, 14th July 2016

“Robert Plane gives a very fine reading for Naxos, playing with the Northern Sinfonia, of which he was principal clarinet at the time. His playing is fluent and purposeful, with plenty of character; he is suitably indignant at the close of the first movement and displays an emphatic chalumeau register in the second. He shades dynamics with great sensitivity and the rondo is wonderfully good-natured” Gramophone Magazine
