The Clarinet

About this playlist

The word 'clarinet' probably comes from 'clarion' – a kind of narrow, shrill war trumpet, and early clarinets shared a similarly bright tone. The modern instrument is more multifaceted: perhaps most famous for its mellow, smokey-smooth legato, it can easily hark back to its clarion beginnings and produce a more biting, agile sound where necessary.
