Concert Pieces Op. 113 and 114 by : Felix Mendelssohn : Frank Heidlberger
“Favorite dish in exchange for favorite music” - this perfectly summarizes the genesis of the Konzertstücke. When the clarinettist Heinrich Joseph Baermann and his son Carl; who also played the basset horn; stopped to pay a visit to Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy in 1832; they came to a most curious agreement: they promised their composer friend a generous portion of “Dampfnudeln” (steamed dumplings) and “Rahmstrudel” (sweet-cheese strudel) that Mendelssohn was mad about; if he were to write a piece for them which they could use on their concert tours. The Konzertstück in f minor that originated in this fashion was followed shortly afterwards by a second one in d minor. Both are extremely effective works which wonderfully bring out the unique sound and performance technique of the two instruments from the clarinet family.
