Gary, you cracked me up!!!!!!
Since I can't begin to actually describe the performance, I'll just run
down how he would stack up on the latest Klarinet List Important Topics
Scoreboard. You will, of course, have to grade him based on your own
personal beliefs:

- Vibrato: apparent on sustained notes.
- Playing from Memory?: Yes.
- Authenticity:
-plays with Basset Clarinet (+)
-it's Boehm system, not period (-)
-there's not a definitive score for Basset anyway (?)
- Ligature: apparently some species of Rovner or other fabric
- Type of reed used: couldn't tell.
- Does he call an Eb an eefer?: It didn't come up.

On this last point, the Berlioz Symphony Fantastique, Op. 14 was played
as well, and the program notes allude to "a shrieking E-flat clarinet in
the finale." At least the writer didn't call it "a shrieking eefer in the
finale." :-)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
