A clarinet sonata is piece of music in sonata form for clarinet, often with piano accompaniment.

The Clarinet Sonatas by Brahms are of special significance in the development of the clarinet repertoire. Several important transcriptions are also possible, including sonatas by Mozart, Schubert, Reinecke, Copland, and Prokofiev.
