Clarinetists Corrado Giuffredi & Jose Franch-Ballester join forces to perform a rare manuscript of Richard Strauss´s Till Eulenspiegels Marry Pranks arranged for 2 Bb Clarinets by Joel Sheveloff. This arrangement was completed on February 9th 1956.
Mr Sheveloff wrote: "The orchestral tone poem reduced measure for measure to a duet for clarinets in Bb."

Special thanks to Steven Cohen (Clarinet Professor at Northwestern University in Chicago) for letting use this manuscript.
