In a letter to Erwin Schulhoff, Berg bitterly complained about his unsuccessful attempt to find a publisher for his “Pieces for Clarinet,” “Once again at my own expense! A few antique pieces in my apartment had to pay for it.” The concise miniatures are outstanding examples of the “little pieces” genre, to which Arnold Schoenberg and Anton von Webern also contributed. We warmly recommend these short but imaginative pieces in Henle Urtext to all those clarinetists who are willing to experiment. This edition is available worldwide.

    Even in these tiny pieces which are almost like a few phrases rather than finished works, Berg conveys the complexity of atonal composition. As always, Henle's texts have great clarity and precison for ease of reading and performing.
