The clarinet first appeared in the orchestra in the Classical period, Mozart liked the sound of it, and soon it was part of the standard orchestra we know today. I like the clarinet too,. It's smooth and silky, and blends well with many instruments. I've been working on a piece for clarinet and band, and you can listen to it, if you wish. I call it a Pastoral. I have used a pedal point which runs throughout, with the ensemble moving about that point.
