We always tranposed C-parts by sight on a Bb clarinet. Something I do since
I was 16 years old (parts you played, made by "composers" who didn't know
anything about clarinet-transpositions...). Since a few years, we (the
orchestra) have C-clarinets (Buffet Prestige), so now we play very easily
the c-parts on a clarinet wich has a slightly different sound than the Bb
or A-clarinet. (But: Mozartiana, by Tchaikowski is still difficult...).

| thanks to everyone who gave me info on transposing from a Bb part for A
| clarinet. I was able to do it correctly and turned a difficult part into
| a simple one.
| I am still working on my transposition skills on C clarinet parts
| by sight. Do most of you write out the parts when you have a C clarinet
| part, or read it by sight?
| Once again, Thanks
