 Does this Solo Exist?
Author: clarinetman

I have always heard stories about a solo for clarinet in which the clarinetist takes his/her clarinet apart during the piece. The player ends up playing on the mouthpiece alone. I have heard about this piece from several people, but never actually from someone who has played the piece or knows the composer. Does such a piece really exist or did I just make it up? Thanks for your assistance

It's called "Immer Kleiner" ("smaller and smaller").

I'd rather hear/ see Ralph Strouf's "Clarinet in the lake" song

In addition to Immer Kleiner, there is a similiar piece for clarinet and piano: "The Incredible Shrinking Clarinet" by Lawrence. The Lawrence piece is considerably easier.

Best regards,
