Subj: [kl] Barrels and Karl Leister...
Date: Sat, 15 Jun 2002 18:39:42 -0400

Hi all,

I'm play on R-13's, and I've come to the decision that I need to purchase a
new barrel for my A clarinet (intonation in the upper register of the upper
joint is sharp as always, and response could be better), and I'll be going
with a Moennig, just like my B-flat. For the heck of it, I put my B-flat
barrel (the Moennig) on my A clarinet and things did improve noticeably, so I
was wondering if anyone actually uses the same barrel for both clarinets
(especially Buffet clarinets/barrels). It seems kind of taboo to me (maybe
just superstition?), but it certainly sounded/felt somewhat better. I hope
an A clarinet barrel can do even more. Perhaps it's because the Buffet
factory barrels just don't have a great bore and any Moennig works better? I

As for Leister, I was wondering people's opinion of his Brahms
interpretation, specifically. I studied the Brahms Trio, Op. 114 this year
and used his recording the most. Those that ridicule his interpretation
usually say it's boring, without emotion, but I respect his straightforward
approach as something I could study. I certainly ended up playing it much
differently than he, but I do not really believe he is devoid of passion...I
was just wondering what your thoughts might be...


P.S. I'm going to send an email about me later, so I can properly introduce
myself, rather than sending long posts with no biography for you to identify
me with :-)
