Besides Stravinsky's Three Pieces and Osborne's Rhapsody, are there any
other unaccompanied clarinet solos that anybody could recommend?

If you're an advanced player, here's a list taken from a CD of
clarinet solos ("The Clarinet Alone", Jonathan Cohler). This CD also
includes two pieces that were not written as solos, but Cohler plays
them solo. (There's nothing to stop you from playing "Flight Of The
Bumblebee" solo <heh!>) It happens that these pieces are not my
personal favorites, but for whatever it's worth, here they are:

Donald Martino, A Set For Clarinet

Egon Wellesz, Suite For Clarinet Solo

Erland von Koch, Monolog 3

Willam O. Smith, Five Pieces for Clarinet Alone

Vincent Persichetti, Parable XIII For Solo Clarinet

Sutermeister (sp?) wrote a solo piece for clarinet, I believe, fast
tempo and all over the range. The Klarinet database is loaded with
titles, but my point in recommending a sheet music store is that you can
browse in the bins and choose something that matches your own taste and
skills. I wonder how much a list of titles will help you?
