Summary Provides a detailed review of the achievements of the period's most important clarinet makers, from James Wood to Simiot, as well as the innovations of creative performers such as Ivan Müller and César Janssen. Rice offers research on the practice of clef notation by Italian, French, and German composers, clarifying their use of transposing clarinets, and explores the creative relationships of two key trios of composer, maker, and performer - Carl Maria von Weber, Heinrich Baermann, and Jean-Jacques Baumann; and Mozart, Anton Stadler, and Theodore Lotz.
