<< He demonstrated the superiority of the key by playing his
chromatic scale both ways, and you could definitely hear a difference.

<<While I don't doubt either you or Mr. Opperman, such an experiment doesn't
really adequately demonstrate superiority of one fingering vs. another. It
demonstrated Mr. Opperman's preference based on his technique, control,
and the condition of his clarinet.>>>

I was referring here to Mr. Stoltzman, who was giving the class, not to Mr.
Opperman. Those of us who were there saw the point he was making...he had the
student do it, and the different fingering made him sound better, too.
