Subj: [kl] Clarinets for Stravinsky and DeFalla?
Date: Thu, 20 May 2010 11:24:42 -0400
Does anybody know which clarinets Manuel DeFalla requires for his 1916 full
orchestral version of the Ritual Fire Dance? I know that this version (there
are six others!) calls for two clarinets, but what keys of clarinets does he
specify? Clarinet in A? B-flat?
Similarly, Igor Stravinsky calls for three clarinet players for his 1910
ballet, "The Firebird," and the 1911 "Firebird Suite." One of the clarinet
players doubles on E-flat clarinet, but what are the keys of the other three
Thanks very much!
