Michael Collins is in the spotlight this month, with numerous press interviews, broadcasts and reviews.

His new disc of Crusell Clarinet Concertos with Swedish Chamber Orchestra (Chandos Records) has received high praise:

  • Gramophone Magazine’s ‘Recording of the Month‘ in June 2018: “His faultless clarity and articulation, especially at some of the speeds he adopts, are things to marvel at.”


  • A 5 star review in BBC Music Magazine: “Michael thrills and charms in these characterful concertos.”


  • The disc was John Suchet’s ‘Album of the Week’ Classic FM: “…based on the evidence assembled here, it looks like it won’t be long before we’re hearing these fabulous works in concert halls and on-air far more often.”


  • A broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review: “A fabulous disc… if you have a heart for this period of music and the sound of the clarinet, you’ll love it.”


  • A 5 star review in Classical Source: “eloquent and extremely beautiful, phrased sensitively by Collins…”
