    This Rondo is the third movement of the Clarinet-Piano sonata by the composer Theodore Gouvy in 1875. Apparently it is claimed (according to the notes from the publisher anyway) to be "the first clarinet sonata (if you don't count Weber's Grand Duo) written by a renowned romantic composer" and it was written 20 years before the Brahms Sonatas. I love finding pieces a little less known and when we tried the Rondo, it sounded like it was made for our duo, Acclarion. So here it is; let me know what you think.

    I think there's way too much wiggle-room in the definition of "romantic composer." Hey, Wikipedia lists a couple hundred from the late 18th century to the mid 20th.
