Glenn was right. The three players as far as the written sources go, were =
Allegra, Porta, and Iturbi.

The question remain: Was Allegra playing on a full Boehm clarinet. If so,=
did he also had a full Boehm clarinet in A?

My source was Augustin Duqu=E8s. It was my recollection that he premiered =

Dear Steve,

I returned the book to the library, but there's a poster of the premier in =

Robert Craft's book, "Stravinsky in Pictures and Document." An article in =

the Clarinet journal, Vol. 32, No. 2, 2009 also stated that Allegra =

premiered the Three Pieces and L'Histoire du Soldat.

Stravinsky completed the work in November 1919. Eric Walter White's book, =

"Stravinsky: Composer and His Works," also stated 3 concerts where this wor=
k =

was heard in 1919: Nov 8, Nov 20, and Dec 17th. All performances were =

sponsored by Reinhart, and Allegra played both the Three Pieces and the Tri=
o =

in these concerts.

Could you enlighten us of your source of information that Augustin Duqu=E8s =

premiered the trio?

I was always under the impression that the French clarinetist Augustin
Duqu=E8s premiered the Trio version of L'Histoire. He was later Principal
Clarinet in the New York Symphony under Walter Damrosch and the NBC Symphony
under Arturo Toscanini. What is your source of information?
