André Messager (1853-1929) composed Solo De Concours for Clarinet in 1899, as a Paris Conservatoire Contest piece.

Composed in three sections, the cheerful first part contains triplet figures by the Clarinet that can easily be heard over the Orchestra. The second part has a strong French melody that can be heard as an exchange between the Clarinet and the Orchestra. A cadenza followed by trills ends this section and leads to the final part, where the Clarinet stands out from the Orchestra, with a rich melodic energy.

André Messager is a previous student of Gabriel Fauré and Camille Saint-Saëns who wrote numerous operas, operettas and ballets. He was later appointed Commander of the Legion d’Honneur.

Written in 1901 for the Paris Conservatoire contest, Solo de Concours, Op. 10 for Clarinet by Henri Rabaud is a piece that has become very popular since its composition. Used five additional times for the contest, this piece was written for advanced clarinettists. Featuring three main parts, its cadenza is one of the most difficult parts of the piece and will require some strong technique and some patience to be played smoothly.

Henri Rabaud (1873-1949) is a French conductor and composer and was director at the Paris Conservatoire. He composed many famous pieces, including this Solo de Concours, Op. 10 but also a cantata 'Daphné' which won the Grand Prix de Rome, some operas ('Mârouf, savetier du Caire Op. 14', 'L’appel de la mer'), and some chamber music ('Andante et Scherzo for flute, violin and piano Op. 8').
