Classical. This short recital piece (c.4:15) is an adaptation of the "Rondo Capriccioso" for flute solo by early Classical period composer Anton Stamitz, whose brother Carl Philipp composed several popular clarinet concertos that are still studied and performed today. Melodic movement in this spritely 6/8 piece is predominantly scalar passages and arpeggiated figures, and is especially well-suited for the student clarinetist who could profit from a short selection in a conservative classic style (written key of G). It is also useful for the more advanced student or professional looking for an energetic recital opener. A piano accompaniment in period style is provided to enhance performance and study options, although the piece may of course be played unaccompanied, as Stamitz originally composed it for flute. A separate arrangement for Bb clarinet is also available, see item 106472.
