The sixty-third concerto deals with the bass clarinet (image source). We have seen the soprano clarinet (which is the instrument normally referred to simply as clarinet) in post 30. The bass clarinet plays an octave lower, and has been used on many occasions in compositions by the likes of Berlioz, Wagner and Liszt. Concertos for the instrument are rather rare though. I have one in my CD collection, composed by Dietrich Erdmann. It is played by Renate Rusche and the Berliner Philharmoniker under Werner Hagen, available on an MDG CD.
