There is (at least) one other concerto written for the basset clarinet (or
clarinet with a few extra notes..), by Sussmayr. It is a completion,
recently published (I don't have the copy to hand as I am out of the
country). But Sussmayr is the last person to object to completions, isn't

Re supporting the instrument. As I recollect, the engraving of Stadler at
Riga shows him just holding it without support. Dan? I could not do this
with my modern basset clarinet; the wood is heavier and the the keywork much
heavier. I use a sling with a chest support.
