Sonate in G Major, Op. 78
Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Clarinet, Piano
Joshua and Stefanie Gardner have arranged Johannes Brahms’ first violin sonata, op. 78 for clarinet and piano. As much as possible the work is unchanged from the original violin part, though there are several sections notated with an optional 8vb part when the violin’s range becomes prohibitively high. For the clarinetist who’s always wanted more Brahms to play, this arrangement is an excellent choice.
