 The Clarinets role in the symphony orchestra
Author: Keil 
Date:   1999-08-09 19:03

In the traditional symphony there are only 2 clarinets and maybe 1 bass clarinet!! In youth symphonies there tends to be 4 clarinets and maybe 1 bass clarinet! My question is what exactly is our purpose in the symphony. I understand that from piece to piece our role may change but over all what are we there for? They keep so few woodwinds, it makes me wonder!
