 Rarely played clarinet music, which you love

14 years ago I started a thread about your favorite unknown clarinet music:

I have learned so much by your great answers.
Would you now tell us again, which seldom played clarinet music you love? Perhaps you can give us some notes about the composer, the work, the publisher of sheet music and available recordings, if you know that.

Actually my personal favorite is the clarinet sonata in G of Gustav Jenner (1865-1920) for A clarinet. According to the preface in the Schott edition Jenner was a student of Brahms und thus his sonata even sounds. The sonata ist dedicated to Richard Mühlfeld, for whom Brahms wrote his sonatas in 1894 too. Jenners sonata was first played in the spring of 1899 in Vienna by Mühlfeld. By the way, there ist also a Trio for clarinet, french horn and piano by Jenner.

The sheet music is available at imslp.

Here recordings of the four movements at youtube:

If you come to ClarinetFest you’ll hear me give the premier of an English work written in 1947 which I hope will enter the repertoire.

Castelnuovo-Tedesco Sonata, Op. 128. For a while there were no available recordings in the catalog, but this appears to be changing. The work is quite taxing so I can understand why it's not done more often...
