I recall that someone asked about this, and I can't recall if anything
further was posted. If it was, my apologies (it's been a frenetic fortnight
or so). This is taken from the Cambridge University Press web server
( for those interested).

Mozart: Clarinet Concerto

Cambridge Music Handbooks
Colin Lawson

Mozart's Clarinet Concerto is of supreme importance as his last instrumental
work. Yet there are a number of special problems surrounding the piece,
since the autograph is lost and the unique instrument for which it was
written has not survived. This book provides evidence of the development of
the clarinet, Mozart's encounter with it, and the composition and
subsequent reception of the Clarinet Concerto. An analysis of the work is
complemented by discussion of performance practice and of surviving relevant
instruments. Expertise from the author's colleagues contributes to some
valuable appendices.
