I found an I tunes clip of just the beginning adagio section but I can't find a complete recording by anybody. I really like the intervals and implied harmony in this piece. Just take a year to "get it " I guess. I bought the sheet music and will work on it. K

I tunes for some reason doesn't have any complete recordings but many are available. I have a Drucker recording with the NY Philharmonic, a Richard Stoltzman and I believe a few others. Check out YouTube. Almost every major clarinetist has recorded this.

Martin Frost recorded the piece. He is an extremely talented musician and I'm sure this recording is just as good as the classical ones I've heard.

Hi Keith, This is a wonderful piece which AAron Copeland actually composed for Benny Goodman. The Adagio is really nice....it gives way to the second movement which is an extended 2 page cadenza. It is unaccompanied and escalates from the adagio feel to a rather frantic wrapup which segues into the 3rd movement. The 3rd mvt is very jazz inspired. It is a one of a kind concerto. I played this on a junior recital back in the 70s. The entire piece is on youtube. I have recently listened to it there. This piece is just plain fun once you get it under your fingers.

Paul Meyer recorded a beautiful version or it. The cadenza is delightful.
