We just played Shostakovich 5 here at Cal. ST. Northridge. I am not sure
who the publisher was, I dont think it was Kalmus or LUcks. Anyways in the
1st clarinet part the 1st mvmt began on A clarinet, and switch to Bb, 2nd
mvmt was Bb, 3rd was A (I played the solo line on Bb-transposed), and the
4th mvmt was Bb. I believe the second part was the same, and well Eb
part styaed on Eb. have fun with this piece!
