Though a professional cellist, Franz Danzi's lasting legacy in the classical music world is the large number of wind quintets he composed during his lifetime. Among his other compositions is this charming piece for solo clarinet, bassoon and chamber orchestra, the Concerto Concertante (Op. 47/P. 227). It is often referred to simply as a Concerto or Concertino, however the title Concerto Concertante is taken from the cover of the source material, originally published in 1818 by Musikverlag N. Simrock. While piecing back together an edition of the original version, Matt Johnston created a version of the piece for solo clarinet, bassoon and clarinet choir, dedicated to Peter Geldrich and Shannon Lowe.
