Therefore it’s an etude on modes with C as tonic.

the principle is motive   reworked with a new alteration down to five flat  or up to one sharp.

This principle applies to different figures, different articulations and variegations

on every register

or

 

To avoid monotony each motive is not systematically tranposed in all modes; the goal of this study being a mean to review the main clarinet difficulties in a short time and a warming up tool.
