Clarinet
Composed by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897). Instrumental Solo Part and 2 CDs. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3230).

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3230
ISBN 1596152575.

Brahms' magnificent B-minor Clarinet Quintet is one of the summits of the chamber repertoire for clarinet. It is in many ways an homage to Mozart's classic quintet for clarinet. Not to be overlooked by any serious clarinetist. This deluxe 2-CD set includes the quintet in its original key with printed parts for both A and B-flat clarinets, and adds a repitched version for B-flat clarinetists, allowing players of that instrument to learn the same fingerings as the composer's intended A clarinet for performance purposes.

Includes a high-quality, newly engraved printed solo part with parts in the original key for both A clarinet and B-flat clarinets; plus a compact disc with a complete recording of the quintet, with soloist; and a second performance minus the soloist. Also includes a second compact disc containing a recording of the quintet repitched to allow B-flat clarinetists to play the original written part for A-clarinet.

    This is a very subtle piece. To be played as MMO the accompaniement would have to be more regular. Without someone directing, or at least being able to sit in with the strings, it is almost impossible to follow. For learning purposes you would almost have to have a rythm...

    "click" going. This would destroy the esthetics of the piece but at least rend it "learnable".

  • June 18, 2008 Phew!

    This is a VERY difficult piece to play with the accompaniment. I have been playing the music alone for many years and have had no difficulty with it, but the tempo's are so vague on the recording that it's almost impossible to follow. I think it would require...

    a GREAT deal of listening to the complete version to master this. Not easy.
