Heroes & Heroines of Clarinettistry contains a representative selection of articles written over a 40-year period by Pamela Weston, well-known as an authority in all aspects relating to the clarinet, especially its performers and the composers who wrote for them. New and fascinating information is revealed on best-known composer/clarinettist relationships such as Mozart with Anton Stadler, Weber with Heinrich Baermann, Spohr with Simon Hermstedt and Brahms with Richard MŸhlfeld. Further subjects include the following: clarinettists of the French Revolution (including a map of Paris showing where they lived), Russia's clarinet dynasty, early 19th-century female performers, the great Finnish clarinettist Crussell whose diary tells of French Revolution events and a Napoleonic military parade, Verdi's clarinettist Cavallini who played for and was on familiar terms with the Tsar, the full stories of Stanford's concerto (it was Pamela Weston who got this beautiful work published for the first time, fifty years after the composer's death) and Ireland's Fantasy-Sonata (how the composer worked with the Sonata's dedicatee, Frederick Thurston). These articles were originally published in the following journals: The Clarinet (U.S.A.), National Association of College Wind & Percussion Instructors (U.S.A.), Clarinet & Saxophone (U.K.), Musical Times (U.K.), Music & Musicians (U.K.), Music Teacher (U.K.).
