Description: Hanssens was a cellist but, as you can see, he liked the clarinet too. All five works here date from 1836-1843; the Fantaisie has affiliations with the Germanic early Romanticism of Weber and Spohr while the rest are more playful and light-hearted. Eddy Vanoosthuyse (clarinet), Eric Speller (oboe), Milan Pala (violin), Slovak Sinfonietta, Žilinal; Herman Engels.
