    Nice edition. No errors that I know of, articulation seems fine (everybody does what they want anyway, especially if they are high enough level to even possess this music). Be warned: 'tis a very very tough piece of music. Great fun, but if you have problems with high notes, fast...

    tonguing, or more runs than you can shake a stick at, you might want to wait a little on this one. Nevertheless, the piece is awesome, and we need virtuosic music just like the violinists.

  • March 20, 2009 Not sooo bad.

    Nice big print so it doesn't look as difficult...and I wish they would have included some of the alternative passages like you'll find in the German publication of this piece, I had to write them all in myself

    This is a really great piece that doesn't seem to be all that well know. I heard it performed by Franklin Cohen in a wonderful performance with the Cleveland Orchestra.

    This piece is beautiful! It's fun to play and gives just enough of a challenge.

  • May 30, 2007 Best piece ever

    This is my favorite song to listen to and play. It has easy sections and a whole lot of hard ones. After hours of practice I hardly have any of it up to performance quality. I would only recommend it to very serious and advanced clarinettists.
