    The clarinet has long been one of my favorite instruments. It has such a sensuous sound... like hot chocolate. It would seem that neither you nor I are alone in our love of this instrument. Any number of composers have written some of their finest music for clarinet: Mozart, Brahms, Debussy, Copland, Bernstein, Gershwin, Weber, Krommer, Spohr, Nielsen, John Corigliano, Benny Goodman, Stamitz, Finzi, etc... Just recently I was introduced to the marvelous clarinet quartets of Franz Anton Hoffmeister which are absolutely delicious... Classical era bon-bons!

    Welcome to the group as well.

    Thank u for ur comment!
    I think the sound of clarinet as something let us feel warm,
    as if we are wrapped with hot chocolate ,that's exactly what you say!
    I especially love piceis composed by Brahms, Schumann, and Weber!
    I regret I don't know Franz Anton Hoffmeister ;-0

    I play clarinet too, have for about nine years. I am currently working on the first Brahms clarinet sonata. Have you played the Weber clarinet concertos? Did they inspire your name?

    I worked on the Sonata no.1 too!
    I love it because it includes very deep and dark melody while it includes so bright one.

    I haven't worked on the Weber clarinet concertos, but I have Played some small pieces of him, concertino and so on.
    Yes, I was exactly inspired by him!
