"She has the gift of making a phrase, and one mark of her magnetism and flair is the way she can hold tension over an exaggerated pause or tenuto."

"Poulenc Sonata's first movement is interpreted with insight by Kam, who brings an elegiac intensity to the Romanza, with its sudden bitter end: her tone is so seductive and her pianist so imaginative that one willingly surrenders to go along with them: their finale is a triumph.
The change of style from Gallic pungency to romantic schw√§rmerei for the Schumann pieces is accomplished with rounder tone and just the right amount of sentiment - affectionately lingering but not cloying. The phrasing and fine tonal gradations of the pair are much to be admired."

"Kam's generous lines, gracious phrasing and purity of timbre in the Adagio make this second movement a tender lullaby worth the price of the disc alone."

"...Far from being lightweight, an artistic lightness weaves its way through this CD that gladdens the heart on first hearing and, subsequently, amazes..."

"If Classical Candor gave out awards for Best Recordings of the Year, this release of late-Mozart clarinet works would surely be high on the list of contenders. It is an almost perfect realization of the composer's music in equally felicitous recorded sound. I haven't listened to anything so charming in quite some time.

With Ms. Kam the Clarinet Concerto sings. From the rhapsodic tranquility of the first movement through the sweet, wistful, melancholic flow of the second movement to the energetic playfulness of the finale, Ms. Kam and the Haydn Philharmonic are in complete accord with the material, producing a warm, elegant, refined, and moving interpretation.

In the accompanying work, the Quintet in A major, KV581, four other distinguished players join Ms. Kam: Isabelle van Keulen, violin; Ulrike-Anima Mathe, violin; Volker Jackobsen, viola; and Gustav Rivinius, violoncello. Their execution is wonderfully lyrical and relaxed and their playing ideal, with the resonant sound of the basset clarinet lending an agreeably vibrant sonority to the proceedings. Like everything else in the performance, the final variations are a joy.

This is a welcome album from start to finish, among the best I've heard this year."
