    If you had the pleasure to hear Jim Underwood play the Clarke version you would be amazed and love it. Jim is the best cornet soloist I have ever heard, live or Memorex.

    The Clarke one is one of the easiest (besides the F) if you can already play the first variation of the original Arban- the Clarke doesn't have any of the fast double-tonguing and has no triple tonguing at all. The finale is much easier, too, since it has no annoying more-than-an-octave-jumps-in-the-lower-register. You can actually play the Clarke finale with only one finger for a gimmick (up until the end, at least).

    You might also want to get ahold of Guy Touvron's (Andre student) "Carnival in Venice" CD released on RCA red seal 09026-61815-2 if you can find it. It has a really great version and he performs it up a 4th so I'm guessing he did it on an F picc.

    Maurice André owns Hora Legato. He demonstrates an incredible command of the cornet here - but does everything really have to be duh-guh-du-guh though?

    I think not. Each version out there from the world class offers something unique - the players personalities. That is why NO ONE can ever "OWN" a piece. Hakan Hardenberger made an excellent recording of this - when he was 16.
