Another question,

If a person makes an edition of the Weber Concertito for piano and
clarinet, does it not qualify as copyrightable even though the original was
for clarinet and orchestra? In other words, if a person arranges the
orchestra part into a piano edition - even without changing anything in the
clarinet part - is this copyrightable?

A Clarinetist's Revenge is sometimes personified by the following excerpt
from the London Daily News, circa 1926:

"The saxophone is a long metal instrument bent at both ends. It is alleged
to be musical. As regards markings, the creature has a series of tiny taps
stuck upon it, apparently at random. These taps are very sensitive: when
touched they cause the instrument to utter miserable sounds suggesting
untold agony. Sometimes it bursts into tears. At either end there is a
hole. People, sometimes for no reason at all, blow down the small end of
the saxophone which then shrieks and moans."
