“Clarence is a true master of sonorities”
“Not only does Clarence have the physical heft to project above the orchestra, he also gave the score an improvisatory feel by dictating the pace, slowing at will and then upping the ante when it mattered.”
“Always careful to maintain the seamless soprano line, Clarence never forsook beauty for the pursuit of virtuosity.”
