From the Publisher
When the clarinet method was revised and newly published, the Daily Exercises, which were originally a part of the Clarinet Method Op. 63 by Carl Baermann, were published as a separate edition. The essential improvement consists in the arrangement of the individual exercises, which simplifies their use in teaching practice. As with the two volumes of the Clarinet Method, the musical text is based on the first edition of the method, and only few differences concerning articulation as well as several misprints and typographical errors were revised. By deleting the historical fingering instructions for the German fingering system, the clarinet method not only has a clean and, compared to the original, more clearly structured layout, but can also be used universally. By adding exercises with fourths, fifths, sevenths and octaves, the "Daily Exercises" contain everything that is necessary for the thorough technical education of a clarinettist and thus are an independent volume that can be used either as a supplement to the Baermann method or totally independently of it. Thanks to the revision by Robert Erdt, the result is a textbook that is oriented towards the original as regards content and, at the same time, has been adjusted to the current times with regard to language, education and instrumental technique so that this clarinet method by Carl Baermann can maintain its position in modern clarinet lessons as important educational literature for the classical clarinet.
