High notes on the clarinet

A friend of mine lent me a tape given to him by a Ukrainian teacher of
saxophone and clarinet.
The tape is of young girl named Veronica Kuzmina.
At the time the tape was made, she was only 15.
What did she play?
One side are violin pieces, like Rondo Capricioso,a Tchaikovsky piece,
Vieutemps.

The astounding thing: she plays the high notes.And double tongues them
too.
On the other side she plays her own compositions , full of very high
notes. She also sings along while she plays.

Her tone is rough when she plays loudly. But when she plays softly, its
very musical. She has a vibrato. But more an imitation of a violin. Its
not the usual vibrato one hears on clarinet.

The high notes are astounding.
But then, like a lister wrote in," How many of those are there in a
Brahms sonate"?
