The "First Concerto" for clarinet was composed by Carl Maria von Weber at the relatively young age of 25 for Munich clarinettist, Heinrich Börmann. The work in three movements is a thrilling and challanging work for any musician. Here it is rendered in Finale 2006 with the GPO Solo Bb Clarinet and Steinway Lite Piano.
The GPO Solo Bb Clarinet is an absolutely wonderful instrument to work with. It color and range is incredible, from the soft dark low register to the steel-edge sound of the higher range when driven hard. This is the perfect instrument for this work!
