This practical guide is intended for all clarinettists with a desire to investigate music of earlier periods. It contains practical help on both the aquisition and playing of historical clarinets, while players of modern instruments will find much advice on style, approach and techniques which combine to make up a well-grounded, period interpretation. The book presents and interprets evidence from primary sources and offers suggestions for further reading and investigation. Most importantly, a series of case studies which include the music of Handel, Mozart and Brahms helps recreate performances which will be as close as possible to the composer's original intention. As the early clarinet becomes increasingly popular worldwide, this guide, written by one of the foremost interpreters of early clarinet music, will ensure that players at all levels - professional, students or amateurs - are fully aware of historical considerations in their performance.

MEDIA REVIEWS
' ... illuminating and surprisingly readable.' Early Music Review
'Colin Lawson's success as both an esteemed academic and dynamic solo clarinettist is brilliantly illustrated in his latest publication. An enlightened journey through all elements of the historical clarinet. A thoroughly informed and instructive publication, and a worthy addition to Lawson's other Cambridge [University] Press publications. Yet to be bettered.' Music Teacher
'All clarinet students who love and play the instrument should read this book. Lawson is one of that rare breed that can play and write equally well.' Early Music Today
