The smallest single-reed in the woodwind family.

The clarinet has been an integral member of the symphony orchestra since the Late Baroque period largely because of its unique timbre and unusually large pitch range. Composers like Mozart and Aaron Copland have taken advantage of the instrument’s virtuosity in their popular Clarinet Concertos, but the clarinet has made a home for itself in a variety of musical genres – from Benny Goodman’s big bands to folkloric Klezmer music.
