ADAGIO from Clarinet Concerto No. 1
The German Carl Maria von Weber (1786 – 1826) composed his Clarinet Concerto No. 1 in F minor (opus 73) for the then famous clarinetist Heinrich Bärmann in 1811. This work belongs to the standard repertoire of any self-respecting clarinetist. Undoubtedly, there are similarities between this Adagio (the second movement of this three-movement concerto) and the second movement (also Adagio) of the famous clarinet concerto by W. A. Mozart (e.g., in tuning and melody delivery).
The middle movement of this Adagio (from measure 41) has a remarkable passage, in which the soloist is accompanied only by three horns.
