Misc. Comments

  • Mostly a demonstration of what a clarinetist could do with Mr. Müller's new 13-key clarinet (as opposed to the 5 or 6-key clarinets in use in Mozart's time), but this also contains the 30 Studies in all Tonalities (Tonleitern und Uebungen in allen Tonarten).
  • The 30 Studies are on pp.42-71.
  • At the bottom of the first exercise, there is an instruction: “Note. The intention of the author is that you should start playing these exercises very slowly to get familiar with the different keys. With increasing skill one plays them quicker. Therefore, no indication of tempo is specified in any of the exercises.”
