Carl Baermann was a clarinetist and composer from Munich, Germany.
He was the son of noted clarinet virtuoso Heinrich Baermann and Helene Harlas. As a child he was taught the clarinet and the basset-horn by his father. He played occasionally in the Munich court orchestra when he was 14 years old, and was appointed its second clarinettist in 1832. When his father retired in 1834, Carl succeeded his father as principal clarinettist. He held that position until he retired in 1880
