Subj: Re: [kl] The making of K. 581

Dear Dan

Thanks for the amplication of this theme...of course it seemd the English
language indeed has so many nuances as to cause confusion.

I am a big fan over your scholarship and simply wanted to stress a few
things I perceived going on in the Original instrument camp as of late.

As to performers I think it is wonderful so many players are beginning to do
different things to such works that are played poker faced like theK.581.

I remember Harold Wright in a lesson telling me I had better come up with
some imagination quick over the k.581...he felt in some ways I was to
literal and score minded. He told me I forgot the idea of nuance and
inflection...elements that we worked on in Rose and Klose....boy was I a
straight laced teen in those days!!

As to editions I am glad you feel as strongly as I do...I also must mention
the Conductor in question was indeed a Clarinetist!!! I will only go that
far however, but the group was pretty dissapointed in him and his lack of
sympathy for our different text!

Warm Regards,
David Dow
