Ivo Papasov & His Orchestra - Balkanology
This must be the most virtuosic clarinet record ever. In addition this kind of music is never heard of in America; it's real exotic stuff. These Bulgarian/Turkish tunes, though apparently wedding music (!), are played at extremely fast tempos; two are in 7/8, one is in 11/16 (!). They're all vehicles for non stop wailing by Papasov who is probably the greatest clarinet player on the planet.
