As an "old-timer"who learned the piece for the first time in 1975, I
learned the "typo", and grudgingly gave it up. The correct way sounded
"wrong" for a good while after I started using it, and my wife (a
flutist) still prefers the mistake! (She also dislikes ornamentation in
the Mozart Quintet and Concerto - no flames, Dan!!)
re: my post on Bartolozzi - I obviously needed to be more clear (I should
reply to these messages *before* midnight!). Clarinets by different
makers produce multiphonics differently - presumably because of different
bore configurations and tone hole sizes/placements. Then there are the
differences of mouthpieces and mpc/reed setups. So, as Dr. Oehler
correctly states, what worked for Bartolozzi's colleagues does not
necessarily work for everyone.
