Clarinet Concerto No 1 in E flat major, Op 1

Allegro  [11'22]
Adagio  [4'25]
Allegretto  [7'05]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The lively and beautiful first movement of Op 1 contains three themes of diverse character. This is followed by a very slow and comparatively uncomplex Adagio movement of only forty-eight bars including a codetta. There follows a rondo containing three episodes. Although the rondo is in duple time it is characterized by a strong skipping rhythm generally associated with the triple-time polacca.
