I think that memorization is the norm for pianists because playing while
reading the music almost invariably requires a page-turner on stage to assist.
This is not the case for clarinetists. Of course many clarinetists do perform
solos by memory. But this leads to the next reason for a lack of memorization:
most clarinetists are not trained to be soloists.
