Clarinet Concerto No 3 in B flat major, Op 11
The first movement of Op 11 has three themes. Crusell here uses the chalumeau register to particularly good effect. The slow movement is the longest of his three concertos and the most profound. Crusell provides a written-out cadenza for this movement, whereas in Op 1 he gives neither cadenza nor cadence point. The final movement is in sonata-rondo form and in true polacca style.
