Raymond Gallois Montbrun (1918-1994) composed his Concertstück for Clarinet and Piano in 1946, two years after he won the Grand Prix de Rome. His Violin Concerto, Japan Symphony and Concertstück for Clarinet and Piano remain popular to this day. Concertstück for Clarinet and Piano begins with a virtuosic clarinet cadenza, covering a wide range on the instrument. The piece remains virtuosic throughout, with many changes of tempo, articulation, dynamics, rhythms, key signatures and time signatures throughout. As a suitable and varied piece for the repertoire of advanced clarinetists, Gallois Montbrun's Concertstück for Clarinet and Piano cannot be missed.
