Hat wrote;


Though he hasn't played a note professionally in well over 30 years, Robert Marcellus is still considered one of the few best examples of what it means to sit in a principal chair in a major orchestra on any instrument. He was also a highly skilled conductor and an outstan..etc"

the wordings "Though he hasn't played a note etc al"
is a rather misleading use of the language Hat. This makes it sound like he is still going...present tense participle is implied by the use word "Though..."

My favorite recording of the 3 pieces is Desplus which used to be on lp. It was done in the 60s...roughly around the time Marcellus was doing his orchestral thing under Szell.

I studied the 3 Pieces in the fall of 88 under Desplus in Paris who in my notes had very many interesting things to say. Of course these are rough translations...

"give thought to the fingering which in mvt. 1 gives the best voicing and shading of nuances..espcailly in the dimineundo and contouring fo dynamics... "

another comment from Desplus( whom Stavinsky admired in this work.)

"the side key f# can be used as well as it gives wonderful opportunity for tuning by keeping the key close to the tone hole...(this can be overdone)

Marcellus sadly left no really substantial chamber music output and no Mozart Quintet. As to his methods like any high level teacher I am sure they are fine...

"So what is this challenge about?"


I love Marcellus' orchestral work...in a catalogue of numerous Clarinet Concerto's of MOZART his rates highly...

So if you can find the Desplus recording you are on to the very finest in the catalogue...

My feeling is only use a fingering based on the context of the passage..which I feel I am in total accord with you Hat...

and Yes I did read the article..but the way it is written is a bit misleading.
