Martin Fröst

“Fröst exhibited a virtuosity and a musicianship
unsurpassed by any clarinettist
— perhaps any instrumentalist — in my memory.”
The New York Times, December 2013
”Until you’ve heard Martin Fröst,
you really haven’t heard the clarinet.”
The Times

”In earlier times, the talent of Martin Frost
would have attracted suspicion. Like that of Paganini…
there is something approaching the supernatural
about his command of his instrument.”
New York Times
”A true performance artist as unpredictable
as he is brilliant.”
The Independent
”One of the most interesting, virtuosic and
daring musicians of our time.”
Fonu Forum
” of the best, most recognised respected soloists
around the world... music fans were quietly thanking God
that they had been allowed to experience this concert.”
Anzeiger Harlingerland
”He is certainly the reigning exponent of the clarinet
today with a performance style totally unique
and technically astounding...”
Hollywood Today
