Carl Maria von Weber, great innovator and orchestrator who paved the way for such Romantic giants as Wagner and Liszt, wrote this famous and oft-performed 'little concerto' in 1811. Lovely sonorities, beautiful themes – in short, a great piece for clarinet and orchestra. Also featured in this MMO edition, Beethoven's beautiful, warm-toned Piano Trio No. 4 is a treasure-trove of possibilities for the clarinetist. Lovely themes – young Beethoven at his best!
Includes a printed music score for B-flat clarinet and professional recordings of a complete version with soloist and a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist.
Performed by Keith Dwyer, clarinet
Accompaniment: Weber Concertino: Stuttgart Festival Orchestra/Emil Kahn; Beethoven Trio: Richard Mattson, violoncello; Robert Conway, piano
