 Buffet Designers Discuss the History of the Buffet Clarinet and Give Reasons for Each Design

In a two part interview with Jose-Daniel Touroude, key Buffet clarinet designers and testers discuss the history of the Buffet-Crampon clarinet and provide the rationale behind each of the modern Buffet clarinet designs up through the Divine. This is the most informative discussion of its kind I have seen, and though the original is in French, the auto translate feature is fairly readable. The link below starts with part two but an option is given at the beginning of the interview to link to part I on the earlier history of the Buffet clarinet.

I found the opinions and views of Michel Arringnon, Maurice Vallet, Daniel Gautier, Eric Baret, and Jerome Perrod provocatively different from the usual account of Buffet one hears in the US. It would be great if their conversation could be continued to cover the Tradition, the Legende and the recent boxwood prototypes. Part 1 does discuss the BC20 clarinet which was the predecessor of both the Tradition and the Legende in bore taper.

Part 1 is "Buffet Crampon: The Heart of the Clarinet, an Interview with Michel Arrignon, Eric Baret, Daniel Gautier, and Maurice Vallet.

Part 2 is "The Current Buffet Clarinets,: Inverviews with Arrignon, Vallet, Gautier, Baret, and Perrod."

Here's Part 2 (with a link to part 1 at the beginning of the text):
