The Sheperd is one of the great chamber pieces for the voice and clarinet.

My lessons with Harold Wr;ight echoe a good deal of what already
said..however, the slow transition between movements which is a cadenza can
really be your moment to shine...the half steps really must be relaxed
before the fast section...or the finale. Harold Wright coached me on this
in a student performance , he was also very quick to point the last 12 bars
as being particularly nasty, spend a good deal of practice on getting the
runs to articulations I have done the last section all not speed up to the point(rushing) you are unable to
play the articulations.

As to tempi for the finale...not so fast that you gloss over some of the
wonderful Viennese qualities...their should be a slight coquesttish quality
to the finale..very playful and exuberant.
