Carl Maria Von Weber: Clarinet Concerto No.2 In E Flat Op.74 (Clarinet/Piano)

Books | Clarinet, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826), the great German romantic composer, was, after Mozart, the first master to write distinguished works for the solo clarinet. They include two compositions with piano accompaniment: the Grand Duo Concertant, and Theme and Variations; two compositions for clarinet and string quartet: the Clarinet Quintet and a set of Variations; three works for clarinet and orchestra: the Concertino and two Concertos.

The Clarinet Concerto No.2 In E Flat Op.74 is a lively and majestic piece, which truly explores the sonorities and technical capabilities of the instrument – the opening two notes of the solo Clarinet part span an interval of three octaves, showing off the range and compass of the instrument! This is a tremendous work for solo Clarinet and Orchestra, arranged here for B flat Clarinet with Piano accompaniment, and edited by Eric Simon.

The solo Clarinet in B flat part is also included on a separate insert.

          Lovely music. Everything was as expected.
          The cadenza in the second movement is extremely small, making it hard to read.

          If you love Mozart you will like Weber. I cannot choose between no1 and no2 concertos, both are lovely, with loads of opportunities to show off the instrument through scales and arpeggios across the full range of the instrument.
