It took Mendelssohn only one day in December 1832 to write his Concert Piece Op. 113 for his friends the clarinettists Heinrich and Carl Baermann. The composer cheekily subtitled it a Grand Duo for Dumplings or Strudel .... Mendelssohn's Konzertstucke in F minor and D minor for clarinet, basset horn and piano or orchestra were written in late 1832 / early 1833 for the famous virtuoso Heinrich Joseph Baermann (1784-1847) and his son Carl (1810-1885), who later orchestrated the second Konzertstuck.

Both works were published posthumously with the added opus numbers 113 and 114. In the 1990s, the Trio di Clarone (Sabine Meyer, Wolfgang Meyer, Reiner Wehle) was responsible for a text-critical revision of all relevant sources, from which the present Urtext edition was derived. Christian Rudolf Riedel added a critical report to this edition.

Erstdruck hrsg. von Christoph Hellmundt 1997.

Zur Praktischen Ausgabe
Mendelssohn schrieb das Konzert im Alter von 12 Jahren. Das Werk lasst klassische Vorbilder (Hummel Dussek u. a.) durchscheinen und gelangt insbesondere im Mittelsatz zur eigenstandigen Gestaltung die dann in romantische Ausdruckswelten vorausweist.

First edition ed. By Christoph Hellmundt 1997.

Practical edition
Mendelssohn composed the Piano Concerto in A minor at the age of 12. Though it clearly betrays the influence of classical models (Hummel Dussek etc.) it attains an individuality especially in the central movement which anticipates the expressive world of Romanticism.

  • October 20, 2010 Clarinet and BASSET Horn (not Euphonium!)

    This is the first of Mendelssohn's two wonderful and charming concert pieces (op. 113 and op. 114) for clarinet in B-flat, basset horn in F, and piano. The edition by Trio di Clarone (Sabine Meyer, Wolfgang Meyer, and Reiner Wehle) is superb. Listen to Sabine Meyer's recordings...

    of these pieces! This is a challenging piece, especially when played on basset horn (many low Cs, requires agility and sensitivity across the entire range). This edition comes with an alternate part for a second B-flat clarinet. There are also arrangements of this piece with either bassoon, alto sax, or horn substituting for the basset horn. Dr. David B.
