Description en anglais :
The clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld (1856-1907) of Meiningen was a legend in his own lifetime. He inspired
Johannes Brahms' brilliant chamber works for clarinet, resulting in a veritable 'clarinet boom'.
Published for the first
time in an unabridged version, this documentation written by his brother Christian Mühlfeld gives the first-hand
testimony of a close relative. It is an account of the musician's life, accompanied by several tables of factual
information and a collection of concert reviews. With its detailed introductions and commentaries it constitutes a
valuable key to the life and work of this exceptional musician. This publication, which includes an article on Mühlfeld's
instruments by the clarinet maker Jochen Seggelke as well as previously unpublished photographs, will fascinate
clarinettists, musicologists, and music lovers alike.
