Subj: [kl] Beethoven Trios

Thank you Mr. Shaw for your help on Op. 11 (3rd Mov't). To continue this
train of thought I pose another question: Is the clarinet designated as a
substitute for the violin in any of the other Beethoven trios? Or, has any
clarinetist taken the liberty of rewriting the violin part and performed it
this way? Somehow I remember one of the other trios (Op. 38) as being one of
these, but I may be confused.
If there are such transcriptions, do they work? - I mean, does it sound
balanced? Its been my experience that clarinet easily masks the cello sound in
the shared passages of Op. 11. This was not as serious a problem when I
played, for instance, the Brahms trio.
