Description: The composer is likely French (the clarinet was becoming popular in the Paris of the early 19th century). The singing potential of the clarinet is fully exploited in these pieces, where melodic lines clearly influenced by the operatic style in their shape and structure are continuously interwoven with more virtuosic passages – in turn indebted to bel canto coloraturas. While the guitar frequently is in charge of harmonic support, it often enters into contrapuntal dialogue with the clarinet, Angelo Litrico (clarinet), Domenico Spada (guitar).
