Carl Maria von Weber and Ernesto Cavellini played an important part in the history of the clarinet, because their compositions helped develop the technical and expressive potential of the instrument. After the classical clarinet had been improved technically during the 18th and 19th century, the composers were more interested to write brilliant pieces with difficult passages, and the clarinet was now able to unfold its complete Romantic richness of tone.
