Abstract

Asks whether the clarinet has improved since Mozart's day or has merely changed. Provides an overview of the clarinet's performance history and examines what historically aware musicians are trying to achieve, how recording has influenced performance, and the practicalities of playing old instruments that the modern-day player must take into consideration.
