Baermann was the extremely accomplished clarinettist for whom Weber wrote most of his clarinet music. Unfortunately for Baermann, Weber composed his last clarinet work in 1816 (the Grand Duo Concertante), however Baermann still needed fresh pieces for his concerts. To solve this problem Baermann turned to composition himself. This Adagio is the beautiful slow movement from one of three clarinet quintets for clarinet and string quartet that Baermann himself composed between 1820 and 1821.
