A Piece I'd Like to Hear Live

Magnus Lindberg's wonderful Clarinet Concerto, a crazy, playful tour-de-force.

And with Carey Bell playing principal clarinet at San Francisco Symphony, why not?

Thanks for the pointer. There's a recording on the Ondine label--I just ordered it. I see at the Ondine web site that he's also written a clarinet-cello duo called Steamboat Bill, Jr., which (as a Buster Keaton fan) I think is really cool.

The clarinet concerto recording is faboo. I could not believe the sounds the clarinetist gets out of that instrument.
