Son of the preceding, a clarinettist of note, and the author of excellent compositions for the clarinet and an excellent Clarinet Method. He was a pupil of his father, accompanied him on his later concert tours, shared in his triumphs, and eventually succeeded to his father's place in the Munich Court Orchestra. From the time he was fourteen years old, he played in the Court band, and he was but eighteen when his father presented him to the world as a virtuoso of highest excellence. Karl Baermann gained enviable fame as a clarinettist. Grove speaks of him as a true scholar and successor of his father.
