Review:


"Encyclopedic in scope, the book is truly a "one-stop" source of information on the Classical era clarinet....Rice does an excellent job of bringing together everything that is known about the Classical clarinet." -- Journal of the American Musical Instrument Society


"The American organologist Albert Rice has done it again.... well-researched tome, packed with fascinating information, much of which is completely new. Perhaps more importantly, it is a well-organized and thorough account, and therefore an essential book for anyone interested in any aspect of the clarinet in this period.... His account of the concerto is up-to-date, and includes a reproduction of the recently discovered illustration of Anton Stadler's basset clarinet, for which Mozart composed the work."--Early Music


"Rice's command of historical sources is truly remarkable, and there can be no doubt that this book will provide source material for clarinet researchers for many years to come."--Music & Letters


"Locating the period of the "classical" clarinet from about 1760 to about 1830, he provides here a lucid study of the progression of innovations to the instrument's construction with generous commentary about its music literature and players.... Rice's book makes valuable observations about the idiomatic repertoire that developed during the classical period."--CHOICE
