 Re: Beethoven Violin Concerto transposed Clarinet Part

I don't like 'arguments by authority', but when they seem to be invoked, I feel that I should weigh in.

Of course, I don't care at all what you, MSK, do.

But, Beethoven thought it worthwhile to ask for the C clarinet, when he had no particular technical reason to do so. And when I ask myself why? in the context of this particular movement, I think that I understand the musical reason.

If I were to play it on the A clarinet, I would try to emulate the ethereal quality of the C clarinet in that register and dynamic. And what I find is that I can do that better on the Bb clarinet. So, lacking a C clarinet in the past, I played it on the Bb. There is no intonation issue really: the Bb isn't 'warmed up', but you can anticipate that problem.

Nowadays I play it, on modern and period clarinets, on the C.

I have respect for the other contributors here; but, don't believe them.

Tony
