Although I read the klarinet digest twice daily, I almost never post
here. However, I am currently practising the K581 and although I do not
have a good enough background to improvise during this piece I wish I

I only have come across one recording which I found quite inspiring. The
clarinetist is Alessandro Carbonare playing K581 and Brahms quintet. It
is by far the most adventurous recording I have heard in terms of
improvisation, nevertheless I feel it might be the most authentic in
style. He always plays the first repeat straight and alters ever so
slightly the second repeat. He does this so naturally, that to me it
sounds obvious this is the way it should be done. I am glad I am backed
up by a Mozart scholar such as Dan Leeson :)

I recommend this recording highly if only to get a different
interpretation of this work. Not to mention Carbonare's phenomenal
ability to color his tone, which makes his Brahms an absolute wonder.
