The Finnish clarinettist Bernhard Crusell spent much of his life as a court musician in Stockholm, where he also won distinction as a translator of opera libretti.
Crusell’s three clarinet concertos make useful and characteristic additions to virtuoso clarinet repertoire of the earlier 19th century. These compositions reflect his period of study with Weber’s teacher Abt Vogler, Gossec and others.
