    Adagio (krommer)

    It's usually difficult to get an Orchestra to play an early Classical piece like this. A Duo Concerto for 2 clarinets & Orchestra.
    Here it is in a clarinet Sextet. The 2nd, slow movement.
    Redone w/Finale 2009.

    I noticed this piece got completely overlooked. I thought I would listen and comment. A fine work here on the Adagio. Could use some reverb, but other than that a very slow piece. I know clarinets arent usually the best candidates for "pretty", only because they lack in the vibrato department. However, there are many other things that the clarinet are capable of. Smooth runs, and range, and deep lows.I think you captured that very well in this piece.

    Thanks for listening, Tubajedimr
    Thanks for listening, Jedimaster...
    I was unfamiliar with this work until a member of an ensemble in Brazil asked me to arrange it for a small ensemble. It was originally written as a duo for clarinets and orchestra.
    All 3 movements are on my soundclick site.

    This a very nice piece. Who is the composer? Is it that very famous one Mr. Anonymous? I am just curious.

    Thanks again for listening, Bill.
    The composer is Krommer, and he followed Mozart in time.
    I have placed what I hear to being between Mozart and Rossini
    in character.
