 Immer Kleiner (Always Smaller) by Adolf Schreiner

Hey everyone! So for a scholarship competition I will be playing a 90 second compilation of Immer Kleiner, a clarinet piece famous for it starting with the full instrument, but taking it apart piece by piece as the music goes along. I was wondering if anyone had played this piece before and, if so, any tips they can give me? Thanks!

First, have a convenient place to put the joints when you remove them.

You will need a false fingering for one of the high notes once you remove the lower joint.

My mouthpiece was VERY flat on the last note (it's written in concert pitch, not clarinet pitch). So I dug out an old mouthpiece and cut some off the bottom end. To raise the pitch a half step, you need to remove about 1/8". You can lower the pitch depending on how you hold the mouthpiece.
