The Evil Penguin pays hommage to the Belgian clarinet virtuoso Walter Boeykens with a series of three cd’s. It is only fitting that at the beginning of his life’s autumn, Walter Boeykens wanted to record the Clarinet Quintet, the masterpiece that Brahms wrote after he had (re)discovered the clarinet late in his own life. The result is a deeply moving registration by a truly great artist. The full extent of Boeykens’ importance becomes obvious when watching the DVD which accompanies the recording (a key passage is Boeykens’ work with Pierre Boulez while premiering the latter’s composition Domaines).
