Editorial Reviews


"The book is concise..." Choice

"Overall, the book is well balanced and very useful from college level to professional...this book contains much useful material for clarinetists and other wind players that cannot be found anywhere else. Lawson's writing isthoughtful and enjoyable to read. His book is highly recommended." American Musical Instrument Society Newsletter

"This valuable book (along with forthcoming volumes in the same series for the early horn, keyboard, violin and viola, and flute) will undoubtedly be studied years from now as evidence of how performers of today approached the performance of music from earlier periods." Notes, March 2001

Book Description

This guide, written by one of the foremost interpreters of early clarinet music, is intended for all clarinettists with a desire to investigate music of earlier periods. It contains practical help on both the aquisition and playing of historical clarinets, while performers on modern instruments will find much advice on style, approach and techniques which combine to make up a well-grounded, period interpretation. Most importantly, case studies which include the music of Handel, Mozart and Brahms help recreate performances as close as possible to the composer's original intention.
