It is not difficult to understand why Henri Rabaud's 'Solo de Concours' (Contest Solo) for the clarinet has been popular ever since its composition in 1901. It is so entirely in the idion of the instrument, and as grateful as any piece of music ever written for the clarinet. It was composed for the graduation and solo competition for the Paris Conservatory and was used again for the competition in the years 1908, 1915, 1925, and 1937.
