Well, I'm not a clarinetist, but if you're pretty good, the Poulenc Sonata for Clarinet (and Piano) is a really cool piece and could let you show off a good mix of musicality and technicality (it's got some fairly high stuff). The third movement particularily comes to mind.

But I'm not a clarinetist. :wink:

the mozart trio, the mozart clarinet concerto, the hindemith solo, and lots of etudes from the rose 32 and rose 40 are pretty good.

Never try to play a piece that is above your ability, unless you have years to prepare. Sometimes though, the only thing stopping you from that point is your own mental block. You have the ability but you won't believe it.

And the old adage is true: It's easier to play for strangers than your friends (in a formal setting).
