Keith, I have never seen a picture of Stadler holding his basset
clarinet in Riga. The only picture I know if is a drawing of the
instrument itself. Can you tell me to what picture you are

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