I`ve played a whole lot of Weber`s works including both Concertos. #2 in particular has been my favorite. I think you will enjoy learning it and people will enjoy hearing you play it. Always remember to make the first line sound as if it is an entire concerto by itself. And organize your breaths carefully - the runs can get bogged down very easily.

I like them. I`ve played his first, and the first movement of his second. I can`t really be bothered doing any serious work on his second- I like it, but there are heaps of better pieces, and it`s easy enough that if I need to play it I can pull it together in a reasonably short time.
Bob- which Stamitz concerto are you referring to? He wrote about a million for clarinet. I`ve played his third which is alright but not something you want to spend a year working on.
