Clarinet Trio
Originally scored for two oboes and English horn, Beethoven's Trio Op. 87 has long been one of the composer's most popular works.  This arrangement for clarinet trio by Donald Bierschenk of the 1st movement expresses the French romantic tradition of his heritage, and is a wonderful selection for contest or recital for a group of advancing clarinetists.
