Following their edition of the Grand Concerto in F minor Op. 5 (51481209); Henle expands their series of Crusell's clarinet concertos to include the one in B-flat major Op. 11. The Swedish composer was himself a prominent clarinet virtuoso and the concertos were tailor-made for himself so to speak. Despite being technically very demanding; the Concerto in B-flat major avoids being overly virtuosic and wins us over with its melodic ingenuity. It is a very welcome addition to Henle's early Romantic repertoire for the clarinet. The clarinetist Nicolai Pfeffer edited the edition in an exemplary manner; consulting the sole surviving source; the first edition of 1829. Johannes Umbreit was responsible for the study score; which wonderfully fits the hands.
