I'd like to read this article.

Technically speaking... there is no evidence of this fact.

Mozart were affected by the early works for clarinet and it is obvious from
some behavior (for example... the contrast of the registers: the melodic
line is not "fluid" but is broken through the register zones of the
instrument...). Mozart refers to the clarinet technique he has heard in
Mannheim and there are some similitude with Stamitz's concerts.

In Weber the instrument is used more modernly: jumps, dynamics,
articulation... something you will never find in Mozart's 622.

>From the formal point of view the two concerts are completely different.

If you are talking of general "tone" then we can only discuss on subjective
feelings.

To me... they are completely different.
In Weber you can find a flaunty way of playing: more virtuosistic,
wheedling, whimpering...

In Mozart the clarinet is more evocative, more innerly deep; there are no
"commercial effects".

But... this is subjective!
