I found the a previous book like that (by P. Weston) at the Carnegie
Library in Pittsburgh, PA. I found it interesting. It does talk about
individual clarinetests. I used for info on Muhlfeld and Stadler. I
don't remember if they both were in it or not. They (Carnegie) may have
this newer one also, I don't know for sure. Interlibrary loan should be
able to track it down. I would bet it is as good as the earlier one.
She has done a lot of research. IMHO, it would be worth looking up--
fact I may try to track it down myself!
