Mozart did not make extensive use of the clarinet until comparatively late in his career, but he wrote exquisitely for the instrument, and the two scores dedicated to his friend, Anton Stadler-the Quintet, KV581 and the Concerto, KV622-are among his most beautiful works. Both, incidentally, belong to the final year of his life. The Clarinet Concerto is in the conventional three movements, with music that transcends conventionality in its remarkable sense of repose and serenity, and what Bernhard Paumgartner has called 'its incredible warmth of tone, perfect balance and unmatched perfection of style.' The concerto had a tremendous resurgence in popularity with the release of the Academy-Award-winning 1985 film Out of Africa, of which the piece formed a major element. This deluxe book includes the concerto 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 easier execution plus the ability to learn the same fingerings as the composer's intended A clarinet for performance purposes.



Includes a high-quality music score (featuring both A and B-flat clarinet parts); and access to high quality audio recordings online featuring demonstration and backing tracks minus you, the soloist. The audio is accessed online using the unique code inside each book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.

    This is a beautiful piece wonderfully put together in a concise and durable package. The CD is awesome to play along with or as piece to listen to. I have been playing the Adagio for years and was thrilled to find this piece It is rare to find any classical...

    music written for the clarinet. I heard John Manassee play this concerto with the Rogue Valley Symphony last year and was enthralled. Now I can play it as well!

    It is a high quality printing on durable paper accompanied with high quality recordings. I have loaded them to my Ipod for a more mobile experience and enjoy listening to and reading the entire concerto! I am new to music and have just picked up my daugther's old clarinet...

    , therefore, I expect it will take some time just to play the second movement. I honestly don't expect to play the entire piece.

    My teacher suggested I purchase this piece. She says all clarinetists need to play it. It is one of the best pieces ever written for the clarinet. I love it. I have learned the 2nd Movement and am looking forward to successfully playing the 1st and 3rd movements.
