No complaints here on her movement, as she can do anything she wants in my

I just don't understand how this video got out when something is going on
with the sound added, as there is no break like that for her mouth to be off
the clarinet that long in this movement.

I would be more concern about that then her moving around in the video,
which does not bother me at all.

of course, I am not expert in clarinet playing.

I think it is a Bassett clarinet in Low G - and I am no expert whatsoever -
but I read somewhere that the instrument that Mozart first wrote for before
the Bassett horn was used, was the Bassett Clarinet.

I don't get your guys (not you Mike) with your extreme distaste for movement
by a performer. I know this has been discussed over and over, but people
persist in shoving their dislike of movement into their emails whenever they
see it in a performance. Music has rhythm, the body feels it - the body
wants to move. Dance is deep in us - and after all, a lot of classical
music, including Mozart, is based on the dances of the period. Apart from
technical reasons to keep control of the embouchure, what the heck is the
problem about moving? It's natural. Standing & playing like a sentry outside
Buckingham Palace is not altogether natural, but if that's how someone gets
the best out of their instrument - great. On the other hand, if moving helps
them feel the music better - that's also fine by me.
