In a letter to Erwin Schulhoff, Berg bitterly complained about his unsuccessful attempt to find a publisher for his “Pieces for Clarinet”, “Once again at my own expense! A few antique pieces in my apartment had to pay for it …” The concise miniatures are outstanding examples of the “little pieces” genre, to which Arnold Schoenberg and Anton von Webern also contributed. We warmly recommend these short but imaginative pieces in Henle Urtext to all those clarinettists who are willing to experiment. This edition is worldwide available.
