clarinet substitution is an abbertation, often done without
consideration of the consequences involved, demonstrable of
a monumental arrogance on the part of clarinet players who
do not give sufficient consideration to their actions, and,
finally, not what was asked of the performer by the composer. >>


I completely agree with your post. During college I had the unpleasant
experience of sitting next to a girl in orchestra who was a couple years
younger than me, and had just this sort of arrogance. I'm so happy to be out
of that situation now. And your post has been a slap on my face this
morning, telling me to get moving to create enough income so that I may
purchase the C, Eb, bass.......

Thank you for your post.
