Mendelssohn Sonata  in E-flat major for Clarinet & Piano

Edited for the first time based on the autograph.

The only wind instrument for which Felix Mendelssohn wrote any solo works is the clarinet.  This Sonata, written by a young Mendelsohn, is genuine chamber music: the clarinet and piano are both used equally as a melody and an accompaniment instrument.  The various playing characteristics of the clarinet are not fully exploited; instead Mendelssohn focuses more on the cantabile character of the instrument.
