Precisely. Just think about in the past, when there were naught but 7 key or 13 key clarinets. People were proficient with THOSE instruments. And I'm sure there were PLENTY of flips and slides and forked fingerings, etc. etc. on something like that.

As a matter of fact, anyone who plays a german system clarinet ends up doing many flips and slides (albeit with help from rollers during some of them, but not ALL of them!) I'm sure that Ms. Sabine Meyer would be able to fool people into thinking that she's not doing any when she plays . . .
