 Re: Thoughts on Playing the Clarinet in Tune

It would be interesting, as people react to this thread, to know if they play primarily in bands or orchestras. I think clarinet tuning issues are different for a band clarinetist playing in a section from those of any woodwind or brass player playing one on a part.

It's one of the reasons I don't enjoy playing in bands as much as I do playing orchestral music. Clarinets don't really have the pitch flexibility of string instruments, so clarinets in groups are much more difficult to keep in tune with each other, much less with the brass or even the flutes, who are also playing in sections with their own internal pitch issues.
