Program Notes

Concertino, Op. 26, by Weber is one of the great works of the clarinetists' repertoire. Its first performance was on April 5, 1811, and the concert was such a success that the composer was commissioned to write two more selections for the clarinet. These fine works brought even greater fame to Weber, already a highly respected composer, and established the clarinet as a leading instrument for the expression of Romantic music. This concertino to this day remains the most popular solo in the clarinetists' repertoire.

The work opens with a slow introduction and proceeds to a leisurely theme followed by several contrasting variations.
