About this book
17 Classical Solos consists of original clarinet music written between the years 1773 and 1885. They are presented in unaccompanied form, the object being to give the clarinettist music which he can enjoy playing on his own. The operatic excerpts are virtually without accompaniment in their original form.
Other solos have been chosen for their suitability to stand alone. The historical significance of the pieces is outlined in the footnotes.
