Reviews

‘Clément has an excellent sense of phrasing, and conveys all that one needs of the dance-like character in each movement.’ Gramophone, October 1960

‘The Jean-Max Clément cycle has much to commend it.. The music-making has a spontaneity, leaving the favourable impression of music freshly composed and being created on the wing. He draws a big, rich, full-bodied sound from his instrument, and his varied vibrato endows his playing with a wealth of tonal shadings… This is certainly a premier league set, in admirable sound for its age.’ MusicWeb International
