    You have set your target high with this one. It would be a super clarinetist to play this beautiful concerto.

    It would be difficult for me, since I am not a clarinet player. A professional would have no problems with it.

    Thanks, Senor Ted, for listening.

    Tengas Buen Dia!

    That was GREAT Larry. Both of them.

    So that's why the clarinet was invented.

    A real explosion of creative energy!

    I have a great morning here in Nerja, Spain (holiday). First Raymond's and now this brilliant composition (first one). Exciting and interesting all the way, a breathtaking action tempo. I do think however the orchestra is placed too much in the background relative the soloist, maybe only in my sound system. Great music.

    Bravissimo Larry!

    We've all heard very difficult and boring virtuoso concerti, but this one is quite the opposite. If there is one striking feature in it, it would be the joyful approach of the soloist and light-hearted accompaniment of the orchestra. And yet, the technical standard is pretty high and demanding for the clarinet. Again very skilfully done. This concerto would be an ideal starter to get the public into the concert hall again.

    One little piece of advice however: leave every now and then a tiny bit of space to the clarinet player to breath some air... You wouldn't want him to drop dead on stage, would you?

    Congrats!
