Rischin, Professor of Clarinet, Releases New Album

Feb 28, 2018

Internationally renowned, award-winning clarinetist, and Ohio University professor, Rebecca Rischin, performs heretofore undiscovered clarinet fantasies in a Romantic style with pianist Youmee Kim.



Reviews for Clarinet Fantasies from Fanfare Magazine:

“Rischin wins praise for her enormous virtuosity … whipped cream legato … and beautiful phrasing.” - Maria Nockin

"Kim plays with great suavité allied to great delicacy. Rischin has a superb technique and a musicality to match; her legato line is a joy, and she shades melodies as a singer might...Kim’s light staccato touch is a continuous source of delight, while Rischin’s fluid decorations seem spun from silk...Rischin breathes magical life into the music’s glorious melodies. There is actually a palpable feel of the music “breathing,” of natural inhalation and exhalation, both on the small scale and the larger scale... A wonderfully life-enhancing disc." - Colin Clarke

"Rischin, whose sound reminds me of that of early supporter Richard Stolzman, plays with a pure, cool tone, a warm but unexaggerated chalumeau, pleasing rubato, subtlety and drama in fitting measure, and an imposing technical facility. Kim is the perfectly supportive recital partner: imaginative and technically immaculate, and skilled at instilling her own energy and personality when the spotlight shifts. Happily, she is kept in good balance with the soloist in these clean and vivid recordings. ..This fine release should have no trouble finding an audience. Collectors of Romantic fantasies for wind soloists will welcome these new additions to the catalog, and devotees of fine clarinet playing will certainly want to hear Rischin and Kim perform them." - Ronald E. Grames

Available on ArkivMusic, HB Direct, iTunes, and Amazon.
