    This piece only gets four stars because the edition itself, I think, is inferior to the Hite edition. Also, I would like to quote what has been written in the Hite edition. I had purchased the Adagios by Wagner and Baermann, only to find out they are the same piece...

    ! Hite says, "Originally for clarinet and string quartet, this beautiful Adagio has over the years been mistakenly attributed to Richard Wagner. In 1922 Michael Balling, a Wagner scholar, discovered a copy of the unidentified manuscript and published it four years later as an early work of Wagner, and it gained considerable popularity as a Wagner composition." ..."In 1964, however, Hans-Georg Bach[...]discovered that the Adagio was actually the middle movement of the Clarinet Quintet, Opus 23, by Heinrich Baermann." I thought that was very interesting; and if you're buying "Wagner's" piece Adagio, make sure you're not buying Baermann's Adagio as well!
