30 More Famous French Clarinetists

Bonne fête nationale à tous mes amis français!

Last year, I created a list of 30 famous French clarinetists. To celebrate Bastille Day this year, I thought I would expand this list by adding 30 more famous French clarinetists.

Disclaimer: This list is not meant to be comprehensive, and I will continue adding to it to celebrate all of the incredible musicians throughout French clarinet history. I have also included some clarinetists on this list who were not French by birth but whose careers were developed or flourished in France. This list is arranged alphabetically.
