Louis Spohr (1784 - 1859: Concerto No. 2 for Violin and Piano - Warner Bros Pubns
One of the leading composers of instrumental music of the early Romantic period, Louis Spohr was a violinist, composer, and conductor. In addition to symphonic works, string quartets, and other solo and chamber music, he composed operas, operettas, and songs. There has been a trend, starting in the late 20th century, to revive his instrumental works and songs.

Music Minus One Clarinet: Spohr Clarinet Concerto No. 1 in C minor, op. 26 (Book & 2 CDs) - Music Minus One
Perform timeless Clarinet works with The Stuttgart Festival Orchestra! Perfect for practice, rehearsal, auditions, contest solos, performances, and more! Ludwig Spohr, who created quite a stir when he began conducting with an odd contraption known as a baton, was also one of the best known violinists of his day (i.e., the first half of the nineteenth century), and is primarily known today for his concerti and other solo works for the fiddle. That he was also quite adept at writing for other instruments than his own is proved by this C-minor Clarinet Concerto, his first of four such works, and a composition high on wit and solid craftsmanship. <P>Includes a high-quality printed music score for B-flat clarinet and a digitally remastered compact disc containing a complete version with soloist, then a second recording of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist; and a second compact disc featuring the complete version again, followed by a -20% slow-tempo accompaniment for practice purposes. <P>MMO CD 3203 <BR>Performed by Collete Galante, clarinet <BR>Accompaniment: Stuttgart Festival Orchestra <BR>Conductor: Emil Kahn
