"Here With You"


“Anthony McGill, the New York Philharmonic’s principal clarinet, and the splendid pianist Gloria Chien offer vibrant and insightful performances of the sonatas on their new album. These works, like much of late Brahms, can come across as weighty and thick-textured, but this duo brings wonderful transparency to the scores. Even in dark, stormy episodes, McGill and Chien play with unforced fervor and eloquence.”

-Anthony Tommasini, New York Times

“This is music-making of the highest order.”

-Jerry Dubin, Fanfare Magazine

“McGill and Chien play as sensitively as two halves of a whole.”

-MusicWeb International, UK

"Anthony McGill and Gloria Chien make some eloquent pairings…"
