I need to find a good concert (recital) arrangement of a S. Joplin
rag for clarinet and piano. If anyone has had success with one I would
greatly appreciate it. I'm in rather a hurry, too! Is it readily available?
P.S. I have enjoyed the discussion on the Mozart Trio. It has been my
experience that the "truth" on the little opening florish lies below
middle C. Down the movement a bit the pianist is haunted by the twist in
the left hand. It's rather low and a bad configuration of the fingers,
I'm told. Tempo and the way we play that figure is often dictated by the
success of the pianist's left hand.
On original instruments I have found that it is not the same problem
of clarity for the pianist but, of course, then the clarinetist is
presented with a bag full of finger twisting!
