CRITIC REVIEW:

“Undoubtedly one of the finest clarinettists ever. Here are his complete Danish recordings 1947-1952 plus never released Brahms and Schumann. Louis Cahuzac is accompanied by conductors Mogens Wöldike and John Frandsen and pianist Folmer Jensen. His Mozart and Nielsen recordings are legendary.

Louis Cahuzac was a French clarinetist and composer, an outstanding performer and one of the few clarinetists who made a career as a soloist in the first part of the 20th century.

Cahuzac made the first recording of Carl Nielsen's Clarinet Concerto, a piece originally written for the Danish clarinetist Aage Oxenvad. On 22 November 1956, at the age of 76, he recorded the Clarinet Concerto in A major by Paul Hindemith for the EMI music label under the composer's baton.

He was a great teacher also and many students became famous like Yona Ettlinger, Hans Rudolph Stadler, Gervase de Peyer, André Boutard (Paris Opéra), Gilbert Voisin (Geneva international prize winner in 1950) and Palle Nehammer.”
