Carl Maria von Weber wrote his Clarinet Concerto No. 1 in F minor, Op. 73 (J. 114) for the clarinetist 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 third movement, Rondo, contrasts with the preceding movements because of the light character. It is a typical rondo that usually ends a three-movement concerto. Instances like this in other similar works include the third movement of Weber'sClarinet Concerto No. 2, Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, and the third movement of Karl Stamitz's Clarinet Concerto No. 3.
- Program Note from Wikipedia
Weber is, perhaps, best known as a composer of operas, such as Der Freischutz and Euryanthe, and had a great influence on Wagner, Mendelssohn, and Liszt, among others. His love of opera can be heard in his clarinet works, which are extremely lyrical. He was an accomplished pianist, but seemed to favor wind instruments in his compositions. He particularly liked the clarinet, which had just gone through some mechanical improvements and was becoming popular. Weber became a very close friend of one of the greatest clarinetists of the age, Heinrich Baermann, and they remained life-long friends. In fact, Weber wrote most, if not all, of his works for clarinet for Baermann.
