SPOHR Clarinet Concerto No. 1 in C minor - op. 26 (Digitally Remastered 2 CD set) (minus Clarinet)
Ludwig Spohr - who created quite a stir when he began conducting with an odd contraption known as a baton - was also one of the best known violinists of his day (i.e. - the first half of the nineteenth century) - and is primarily known today for his concerti and other solo works for the fiddle. That he was also quite adept at writing for other instruments than his own is proved by this C-minor Clarinet Concerto - his first of four such works - and a composition high on wit and solid craftsmanship.
