Subj: Mozart duets for clarinet
Date: Fri, 24 Apr 1998 19:19:24 -0400
There are, I believe, three Mozart works that were transcribed for
clarinet duets in the late 1800s. Stanley Drucker has, I am told,
taken at least one of them, and included it in a volume that he
is said to have edited.
The three works are a piano sonata, and two violin and piano sonatas.
State the key of the work you are doing and I'll try to come up
with which one you are performing.
There are at least 10 editions of those duets so it might be helpful
to state whose edition you are doing. How many movements? Keys
and tempo markings for all movements. Is the first part also
available for flute; i.e., flute and clarinet duets?
