Mendelssohn's Konzertstuck was written in late 1832 / early 1833 for the famous virtuoso Heinrich Joseph Baermann and his son Carl, who later orchestrated the work. 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.

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.

    I first played this piece in a trio of piano and 2 clarinets. The transposition to 2nd clarinet from basset horn is done quite well. The three parts are comparable in difficulty, making for an enjoyable ensemble piece. The piece itself is one of my favorites both to listen and...

    perform. In addition, the instruments chosen are easy for most clarinetists to get together unlike finding bassoon and oboe players.
