Notes and Editorial Reviews

The combination of voice and clarinet with piano can be traced back to the Polacca in Pierre Gaveaux's 18th century opera Le Trompeur Trompe. Even before that Francesco Conti had used the chalumeaux, the precursor of the clarinet, together with voice in his cantatas. The same combination was also highly favored by Mozart, who employed it in two arias from La Clemenza di Tito: "Parto, parto" (clarinet obligato) and "Non piu di fiori" (basset horn obligato), both for soprano voice. The present collection focuses on works for this instrumental/vocal combination created during the 19th century. They range from the best known example of this genre, Schubert's dramatic "Der Hirt auf dem Felsen", to the simplest strophic setting by Berwald. But Read more what is it that moved both great and merely good composers to employ these particular forces?
