I know of a concerto for clarinet by Sussmayr but I am not aware that it
is for basset clarinet. In any case the matter is made even more
unclear by the fact that he never finished the work. There are two
contemporary completions but they would have no relationship to what the
composer had in mind. I believe that Stadler composed some trios for
three clarinets and one of those might have been a basset clarinet, but
Sussmayr having composed for basset clarinet is not known to me.
