Thank you all for the very interesting discussion.

In fact, yes, I am an enthusiastic amateur, playing in a reasonably good
community orchestra. Of course I would prefer to use the instrument
specified by the composer but I could not justify buying a C clarinet for
this one concert. Maybe I can rent one.

The other piece on the program is Brahms Serenade No. 2. This one starts on
the A, then the scherzo in C, then to B and finally back to A. I remember
hearing this piece in concert but I don't remember the clarinets bringing in
3 clarinets.

Maybe the problem is the choice of music. The conductor should choose music
for the instruments he has at his disposal. I doubt that many community
orchestra clarinettists have a C clarinet.

Best wishes to you all

Benedict
