Clarinet


Most duet books for clarinet consist of music from one historical period, or feature the music of one composer. This volume has works arranged for two clarinets, from each period starting with the Baroque and continuing into the twentieth century. These duets are intended for the intermediate level clarinetist and can be played by junior and senior high school students. The music has been composed by well-known composers from about 1725-1900. These duets can be performed on recital or at church school or festival occasions.

This collection of pieces gleaned from the unaccompanied works of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) will broaden the horizons of the amateur, student and professional musicians alike. It is intended that these transcriptions serve as a teaching aid; helping in study of form, phrasing, style and other aspects of making music. In addition, they may also be utilized for the purpose of performance. It should be noted that some register adjustments have been instituted to better suit the range limitations of the clarinet. I have tried my best to be as faithful as possible to Bach's original compositions, striving for consistency and continuity of line. All editorial markings (trills, dynamics, articulations, etc.) are solely the editors and are of course open to interpretation. The first set of pieces (Partita, BWV 1013) is heavily edited to show that keeping within the standard performance practice of the Baroque style, experimentation is expected and encouraged.

This collection of Baroque music is arranged for the intermediate level clarinetist with the piano part being of equal difficulty. The music is taken from keyboard, song and chamber music sources and represents quality Baroque styles circa 1625 - 1775. Composers include Johann S. Bach, Jean P. Rameau, Alessandro Scarlatti, G. F. Handel, Domenic Scarlatti, Antonio Vivaldi, C. P. E. Bach, and Johann J. Froberger. This music can be played by clarinetists for church, festival, school and leisure occasions. The piano accompaniment is available as a free download.

Mel Bay's fingering and scale chart for clarinet is an indispensable reference guide for clarinetists as well as educators.

Included in the chart are:
