  • April 12, 2011 Superb

    While not that technically challenging, I rate this piece as advanced because this piece is hard to play well musically, and can be really expressive. This edition is beautiful, and on nice tan paper, which is always a plus. The only thing that I would say is that it should...

    have been made three pages laying next to one another, and not the page turn.

  • August 03, 2010 Fantastic

    Osborne's Rhapsody for clarinet solo is one wonderful piece of music. I would note that it was originally written for Bassoon, but the clarinet is even better, though it does not, I think, quite capture the "Eastern" sound that the bassoon excels in with this piece. It is not...

    very technically challenging, but dynamic contrast is vast and musical expression is (or should be) prominent. The high register of the Clarinet is hardly tapped into, and there are few fast passages in it, though enough to make for some practice. A favourite part of mine: the cadenza-like solid run in the latter half of the piece. The edition is very nice, on brown paper, which I always like. Serious about the Clarinet? I recommend this piece highly.

  • July 18, 2008 Really worth the buy

    I got this song to mess around with after seeing it. It isn't a song that is overly easy and it greatly lends itself to interpretation and different playthroughs each time. It has technical aspects that took some working on and it proved to be the perfect audition piece...

    for me.

  • February 18, 2008 A Piece of Contrasts

    This piece is all about creating the different moods by dynamics, articulations, tempo etc. A MUST for this piece is fully expressing the contrasts between the different parts of the song - you have to put your heart into it, no matter how corny that was to say.

  • January 16, 2008 Intermediate, but not so...

    It doesn't take much effort to play a slow piece, but it takes a real musician to be able to interpret and create music. This piece will never be performed the same way every time. It's beautifully written, and it's all your playing - no one else. I...

    would recommend it to any clarinetist.
