Chaconne: Recital for Bass Clarinet & Piano

CD Review, The Clarinet, June 2003

CD Review, Clarinet and Saxophone Magazine, Winter 2002

"I received my copy of the new Davenport CD - featuring Michael Davenport on Bass Clarinet and Kim Davenport on Piano. Fabulous CD - well worth your investing in. I especially enjoy the Hindemith Bassoon Sonata played on Bass Clarinet - some very tricky stuff there. If you want to hear some preeminent bass clarinet virtuosity and some wonderful piano playing - I recommend it highly!"
Roger Garrett, Professor of Clarinet, Illinois Wesleyan University
