In preparing himself for the process of scoring the Haydn Concerto for Trumpet and the two Mozart concerti, Rumbelow carefully analyzed the scoring patterns and tendencies of each composer. Mozart's concerti were originally scored for a string orchestra in five voices while his operas and symphonies contained woodwinds, horns, and trumpets in pairs plus occasional trombones. Thus, the approach taken to the present editions retains the use of pairs of woodwinds plus third harmonic voices such as English horn and bass clarinet. The woodwind bass voices have been reinforced with contrabass clarinet, contra bassoon and string bass. Recorded by Larry Combs, bassett clarinet, with the Eastman Wind Ensemble. Accompaniment available for rental only.

totally useless orchestration
Mozart's beautifully perfect piece was orchestrated here for A (!) clarinet solo, making it extremely difficult to play by the accompaning band instruments, which are Bb, Eb and C. Instead, Rumbelow should have done it for Bb clarinet! I wonder if he has ever heard Bob Marcellus' rendition of K622....
