Musical Mysteries

Today We wanted to point out the accomplishments of Mr. Johann Christoph Denner, who in 1690, invented the Clarinet. It did not have all the fancy keys it has today. It was similar to a Chalumeau, so similar infact that We Rhinos can’t see the difference. But then, We don’t play either instrument.

You can see Nurnberg, Germany (not Nuremburg) out the window in this historically troubled image. Also, if you look up Mr. Denner, you will see a lot of portraits of JS Bach, We don’t know why. Better that than Grover Cleveland perhaps.

Research is all very well, but it does make Us wonder. We at YIR like to think We are passing along solid information, but it can be challenging.
