Program Notes

Carl Maria von Weber wrote his Clarinet Concerto No. 1 in F minor, Op. 73 (J. 114) for the clarinettist Heinrich Bärmann in 1811. The piece is considered a gem in the instrument's repertoire. It is written for clarinet in B-flat. The work consists of three movements in the form of fast, slow, fast.

The first movement, Allegro in F minor modulating into A-flat major and later returning to F minor with a meter of 3/4, was very innovative for its time, with some stylistic aspects characteristic of later composers like Felix Mendelssohn.
