Clarinet Music with Piano
(Including Piano Reductions)

(Updated 15 April 2014)

This page has music for clarinet with piano accompaniment (including piano reductions of works with orchestral accompaniment). There are a small number for clarinet and organ. There are several pieces with bass and drums (one without piano). All collections of clarinet music (some have piano accompaniment) are on the Clarinet Music Collections page. Following the CD Sheet Music Clarinet Solos and Duos, items are listed in alphabetical order by composer (mostly, use the Find Command if necessary).

All music specifically for BASS CLARINET is now on its own page. There are works on this page for basset horn and basset clarinet. We have marked music for E-flat clarinet with this symbol: for E-flat Clarinet


We have drawn on the works of Dr. Norman Heim on clarinet literature (which we now publish) for comments on some of these pieces.


The small CD covers are linked to CDs with a performance of the listed piece. (The performance could be from a different edition, especially if it is an older, public domain piece.)

C634: Gnarly Buttons Reduction for Clarinet and Piano by John Adams. Boosey & Hawkes, 1996, SS, 40 + 15 pages. Written for Michael Collins and premiered by him.Three movements: I. The Perilous Shore, II. Hoedown (Mad Cow), and III. Put Your Loving Arms Around Me. An advanced, professional level piece.
Gnarly Buttons - Michael Collins
"Adams' most personal and cathartic work, Gnarly Buttons is a memorial tribute to his father, using the clarinet, his father's instrument, to trace and salute his father's pervasive influence upon his own life and career. It opens with the scales his father taught him to practice, and then alludes to Benny Goodman (whom his father revered), the marching bands and community orchestra in which they played together, and the emergence and development from such roots of Adams' own eclectic musical style. It ends with the confusion, pain and vulnerability of his father's final dementia (during which he became obsessed that someone was trying to steal his instruments) and a brief, peaceful elegy. A curious mélange when heard in the abstract, Gnarly Buttons becomes acutely poignant in context." -- Copyright 2001 by Peter Gutmann used with permission.

C2101: Pacific Serenade for clarinet and piano by Miguel del Aguila. Peermusic, 2001/2013, SS, 15 + 6 pages. Miguel del Águila (1957-) is an Uruguayan-born American composer of contemporary classical music. Written in 1998 and originally for clarinet and string quartet, Pacific Serenade was commissioned by Pacific Serenades Ensemble who premiered it 1998 in Los Angeles. In general the music is extremely quiet, delicate, sensuous and sentimental. The sensuousness is created by the use of South American folkloric idioms, especially the Brazilian choro, which is at times combined with Blues melodies and Jazz harmony. In this version for clarinet and piano, some movements are expanded and some piano harmonies are new. The clarinet part remains close to the original. Early college level with some glissandos. Here is a performance of the first movement (of four with the clarinet tacit on the very brief third movement).

C1077: Chant d'Amour for clarinet and piano by Isaac Albeniz arranged by H. Delacroix. Alphonse Leduc, 1922, SS, 4 + 1 pages. This is a very familiar melody. The rhapsodic nature of this piece and the 8 measure half step shift in the middle of the piece (without changing key signature) will add to challenge for the intermediate student.

C1007: Tango Op. 165 for clarinet and piano by Isaac Albeniz arranged by Béla Kovács. EditionDarok, 2006, SS, 4 + 1 pages. This familiar tango was originally written for piano.

C1723: Sonata for clarinet and piano by William Alwyn. Boosey & Hawkes, 1963, SS, 25 + 7 pages. William Alwyn (1905-1985) was and English composer who studied at the Royal Academy where he later joined the faculty.

Prof. Heim has written that the style is highly romantic, but dissonance is used for emphasis. While writing for clarinet is lyric; there are also periods of technical flourish and climax. The work requires great breath endurance and excellent finger dexterity and is suggested for mature performers.

The three songs are Arioso (Molto moderato), Ballad (Allegretto), and Sephardic Melody (Largamente rubato e molto appassionato).

C1632: Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra (Piano Reduction) by William Bolcom. Marks Music, 1992/1995, 39 + 18 pages. Commissioned by the New York Philharmonic in honor of its 150th Anniversary and dedicated to Stanley Drucker who gave the premier performance on January 3rd, 1992. While the composer was never commissioned to write a concerto for Benny Goodman (there had been some efforts in that direction) he described this concerto as having many "Benny-isms." "The first movement is in roughly Sonata-Allegro form and has a strong Goodman nuance, as does the slow 12-beat-to-the-bar second movement. The last movement alternates a Brazilian chorino with an ebullient Ravelian waltz". The movements are marked: I. Allegro, II. Cantabile (with a jazz feeling), and III. Scherzo-finale (Quasi una cadenza, ma in tempo)/Allegro assai (A chorinho tempo, slightly swung)/(concluding) CRASSLY GRAND! There are a few contemporary techniques such as growling and a slap key. An advanced work with a duration of 20 to 23 minutes.

C616: Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by Aaron Copland. Boosey & Hawkes, 1988, SS, 32 + 12 pages. Transcribed by the composer from his Sonata for Violin and Piano (1943). The clarinet part was edited by Timothy Paradise. In three movements: Andante semplice, Lento, and Allegretto giusto. Prof. Norman Heim wrote: The style is typical of Copland at the time of Appalachian Spring and has similarities with the Concerto for clarinet. There is some use of polytonality and minimal dissonance with a score has a lean texture that contrasts with full sonorities. The clarinet part is not adventuresome but extendsin  range to the middle of altissimo register. Musically, the work requires advanced performers with the piano accompaniment, perhaps, more demanding than clarinet part. This transcription is excellent music by one of the outstanding composers of the twentieth century.

C1133: Aida di G. Verdi Fantasia Op. 240 for Clarinet and Piano by Giusto Dacci edited by Colin Bradbury. Lazarus Edition, 2003, SS, 23 + 11 pages.

His compositions, over 500 in all, include songs, piano pieces, chamber music and operatic fantasies for various instruments, including five for clarinet and piano. The fantasia on Aida was published approximately two years after the first performance of Verdi's opera at the Cairo Opera House (24 December 1871).

The rhythmic structure of the measures is unusual. Recommended for college and professional level receitals. The piano part requires an excellent performer."

C642: First Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by Francoise Devienne edited by Jean-Pierre Dautel and revised by Jacques Lancelot. Editions Musicales Transatlantiques, 1962, SS, 18 + 8 pages. Devienne, Francois (1759-1803) was a flutist and bassoonist, and professor at the Paris Conservatory. In three movements: Allegro con spiritoso (C), Adagio (2/4) and Rondo allegretto (6/8).  Professor Heim wrote that the solo part is scored principally in the upper two registers and is florid with ornamentation figures making this work more difficult. The Adagio is played with one beat to the measure and has many fast notes while the Rondo has a Mozartian flavor. This is good material for college and professional recitals.

C643: Second Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by Francoise Devienne edited by Laurence Boulay and revised by Jacques Lancelot. Editions Musicales Transatlantiques, 1962, SS, 19 + 8 pages. The Second Sonata is in three movements: Allegro con spiritoso (4/4), Adagio (3/8) and Rondeau (2/4). The range is more limited than in the first sonata but still requires good technique. Some embellishments and sixteenth-note groupings may present a problem in the first movement. The second movement is florid, and the Rondo is more like Weber than Mozart. This is also a good sonata for college and professional level recitals.

C717: Summer Solstice for Clarinet and Strings Piano Reduction by Daniel Dorff. MMB Music, 1993, 26 + 10 pages. This work is for clarinet in A. The composer wrote: "In 1986 I began a 'Lyric Quintet' for Clarinet and String Quartet, composing two movements of the projected three that year. . . . Coming back 6 years later with a fresh point of view, I decided this would be better for Clarinet and String Orchestra. This change to a larger string ensemble allows the thick jazz chords to be played more richly and smoothly, allows the contrasts of solo strings and tuttis, and brings the advantages of having a conductor. Having started life as intimately blended chamber music rather than a concerto, the music tends to use the clarinet as a balanced ensemble member at least as much as a soloist, and there are also many solo passages for strings. Only the third movement was originally conceived for full string orchestra, leading the final movement to have more dramatic contrasts between clarinet and strings. The music has a light, summery feel, and the friendly relationship of the clarinet to the strings somehow struck me as a solstice-like meeting point, therefore the title 'Summer Solstice.' "

C1126: Romance for Clarinet and Piano by Edward German edited by Colin Bradbury. Lazarus Edition, 1998, SS, 11 + 2 pages. Edward German (1862-1936) studied at the Royal Academy of Music, studying harmony and counterpoint with Prout and winning organ and violin as well as composition prizes. Although eventually overshadowed by that of his friend Elgar, German's music enjoyed great success in the later Victorian and Edwardian periods, ranging from symphonies, suites and concert overtures to ballads and salon pieces. The Romance dates from German's early years as a professional composer, and was originally one of a pair (of which the other is now lost). The first known performance was by Oscar Street (1869-1923), a pupil of George Clinton, at the Oxford University Musical Union on January 29, 1890. This piece is not difficult and is suitable for intermediate level clarinetists.

C1578: Concerto for clarinet and orchestra (piano reduction) by Ida Gotkovsky. Editions Musicales Transatlantiques, 1968, SS, 42 + 15 pages. Ida Gotkovsky (1933-) is a French composer who studied with Nöel Gallon, Oliver Messiaen, Tony Aubin and Nadia Boulanger. She has won many prizes for her compositions. Concurs du Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris and dedicated Ulysse Delecluse. In three movements: 1. Misterioso-quasi cadenza-ad libitum, 2. Perpetuum Mobile (Prestissimo), and 3. Final. Prof. Heim wrote: The first movement begins with a long section of ad libituum (but measured) clarinet passages with limited participation by the accompaniment. The third movement has two cadenzas: the first begins the movement and is one page long; the second is brief (in the middle of the movement). This concerto is of major proportions and is reminiscent of Bozza's style and, in a limited way, the Tomasi concerto. The clarinet part demands a facile, quick and flexible virtuosic technique although the range is just a little over three octaves. The pianist has a difficult part with many full chords requiring all fingers and many passages in octaves. The harmonic material is complex with some polytonality, mixed seventh chords and added tones while the melodic material for clarinet can be lyric but is usually flamboyant. This work has excellent music and is at the top of the literature for the most advanced player. A CD of this piece is currently unavailable but there are still some sound samples here.

C1204: Ritual Clarinet & Piano by Katherine Hoover. Papagena Press, 1991, SS, 24 + 7 pages. The composer wrote: "Ritual was written in 1989 and is influenced by my study of Greek folk music, which features the clarinet as a virtuoso solo instrument. The piece is in three distinct parts. The first consists mostly of isolated gestures; a sort of recitative. This moves into a mournful, measured duet that builds in steady motion to a climax that recalls some of these opening gestures. This is followed by a fast, at times almost frenzied dance. Many of the runs, interval patterns and rhythms, particularly in the dance, are related to the Greek tradition."

C934: American Standard for Clarinet and Piano by Michael Kaulkin. Swirly Music, 1994, SS, 16 + 7 pages. Originally written for British clarinetist Peter Furniss, this single-movement work has an overtly theatrical aspect, harkening back to the composer's spiritual home in musical theater. A dialogue is established between two contrasting but thematically related sections. The slow, lyrical, aching theme heard at the outset becomes interspersed with a second that is more mischievous, even grotesque in character. Constant development of this faster material provides a means of pushing forward with considerable virtuosity to the composition's rather resigned conclusion, where both themes (and moods) are finally juxtaposed. An advanced work with a duration of about 9 minutes.

C547: Second Sonate in B major for Clarinet in A and Piano Op. 139b by Sigfrid Karg-Elert. Zimmermann, 1965, SS, 27 + 7 pages. The piece is in two extended movements:  Ziemlich bewegt and Sehr rasch, mit íœbermut. Each movement has several sections. There are many markings of style and tempo, mostly in German. The piano part is technically and rhythmically difficult (especially written in B major key), with many added accidentals. While the clarinet part is conservative in range is it virtuosic in content. The rhythm in both parts is complicated, requiring the ensemble to be exact for a good performance. There is a wonderful chamber music relationship between the clarinet and piano.  This is an advanced work for the best players. (Description from Clarinet Literature in Outline by Dr. Norman Heim.)

C1620: Blues da Un Americano a Parigi for Clarinet and Piano by George Gershwin arranged by Michele Mangani with clarinet elaboration by Hengel Gualdi. Edizioni Eufonia, SS, 6 + 2 pages. After a number of requests we have made this clarinet solo based on An American in Paris our first direct import from Italy. We have found two somewhat different performances on YouTube that will give you a good idea of what this sounds like (neither of these play straight through on my computer). The first has a small amount of improvisation (most of the jazz is written out) and is with orchestral accompaniment that does not come across very well. The second is at a slower tempo than the first, sticks more closely to what is written, is with band accompaniment that sounds good, but last 16 bars or so are missing. We can get the accompanying parts. The orchestral version would be approximately $150 and the band edition $125. The duration is a little less than 4 minutes.

Lively, II. In very strict time, III. Slowly (4/4) and IV. Final (Lively). Paraphrasing Prof. Heim: This is a major work in the clarinet concerto repertoire.

It is technically and musically demanding with endurance as the major performance difficulty for the clarinetist because there are few rests and those are short. The piano reduction is complex and requires an excellent player. A work for excellent college players or professionals. Duration about 22:45.

C1617: Mozart Clarinet Concerto K 622 (Piano Reduction) edited by Karl Leister. Edizioni Musicali Eufonia, 2003(?), SS, 36 + 7 pages. In the preface Luigi Magistrelli writes: "Prof. Karl Leister's revision, recorded here, is a result of his vast wealth of experience in live and recorded performances of the work. Here he aims to underline an elegant phrasing with articulations which give much importance to the expressive content of the sublime Mozartian melodies, even in the virtuoso passages, where even the sixteenth notes can become an important part of a cantabile line. Some of the original phrases in the low register of the basset clarinet have been retained in the revision of Prof. Karl Leister." This version is for a standard clarinet in A not a basset clarinet.

C1711: Spiegel im Spiegel for Clarinet (or Bass Clarinet) and Piano by Arvo Pärt. Universal Edition, 1978, SS 8 + 1 pages (includes part for either B-flat or C clarinet). This piece was written by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt in 1978, originally for violin and piano. The piece is in the tintinnabular style created by Pärt in which the "tintinnabular voice" (the piano) arpeggiates the tonic triad and the second voice (clarinet) moves diatonically in stepwise motion. The title means mirror in the mirror. The piece is musically minimal, yet produces a serene tranquility. The clarinet part is very easy (it looks like an ensemble warm up exercise) and the main issue in the piano part is concentration. It is about ten minutes long. Here is a version with clarinet on YouTube and another with a slower tempo. Both of these have dynamics (there aren't any in the music).

This very popular suite of tangos has been arranged for many instruments (we carry the flute, soprano saxophone, clarinet quartet, and saxophone quartet editions). Includes parts for B-flat or A clarinet. The four scenes portrayed are: Bordel 1900, Café 1930, Night-club 1960, and Concert d'aujourd'hui (Modern Day Concert).

WW044: Tango-Etudes for Alto Saxophone and Piano (or Clarinet and Piano) by Astor Piazzolla. Editions Henry Lemoine, 2003, SS. Includes both clarinet and saxophone parts. This is a relatively new edition of this music (originally published in 1989), adding piano accompaniment written by Piazzolla, but which required much painstaking work on the manuscript before it could be published. The clarinet part for use with the piano tends to be mostly in the lower two octaves of the instrument since it is a transposition of the saxophone part. There are some exceptions, however, since most of the six etudes end high in the saxophone altissimo. We have a new source for this music and have been able to reduce the price from $50.95.

C1471: Tango Suite No. 1 for Clarinet and Piano by Hauke Piper. Advance Music, 2009, SS, 14 + 6 pages. To paraphrase from the cover: A suite consisting of four movements - prelude, tango, air, tango. The first movement is rubato. The second has a fixed meter and is set up as a multi-faceted tale. The third movement can be improvised over an accompanying ostinato although a melody is also included. The fourth movement concludes the suite looking back on what has been. In our opinion, this piece is considerably easier than the Piazzolla tangos and will be good for the adventurous student and adult amateur who want to try a tango.

S110: Vocalise Op. 34 No. 14 for Soprano or Tenor Saxophone and Piano by Sergei Rachmaninoff arranged by Ronald L. Caravan. Ethos Publications, SS. The genesis of this arrangement was preparation for a recording session where Dr. Caravan was to record this piece on soprano saxophone. His accompanist insisted he should try the piece in the original concert key (C sharp minor) instead of the available transcriptions which are a half step lower or higher. After trying it in this key they decided it was much more effective and this arrangement is the result. While E-flat minor (six flats) may seem like a difficult key, this piece moves slowly and it should not be a problem for any player at intermediate or above level. This arrangement will work very well on clarinet as well.

C1336: Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra (Piano Reduction) by Alan Rawsthorne with piano reduction by Gerard Schurmann. Oxford University Press/Allegro Music, 1972, SS, 30 + 8 pages. Alan Rawsthorne (1905-1971) was an English composer who studied at the Royal Manchester College of Music and in Berlin. Dedicated to Frederick Thurston who played the first performance in 1937. It is in four movements: Moderato, Capriccio, Aria, and Invention. Prof. Heim wrote that it is written in mid-twentieth century style with a pleasant sprinkling of dissonance. While the movements are relatively short, the total length of the work (19:00) is substantial. The piano reduction requires an expert keyboard player to sort out the intricate parts from the orchestra. This concerto has excellent music for the advanced college level player with the first, third and last movements containing the best music.

C1532: Clarinet Sonate (Klarinettensonate) Op. 105a for Clarinet and Piano by Joseph Rheinberger edited by Bernhard Päuler. Amadeus Verlag, 1985, SS, 33 +11 pages. Joseph Rheinberger (1839-1901) was a German (actually born in Liechtenstein) organist, composer and pedagogue. He composed works for orchestra, operas, 12 masses, many solo organ works and chamber music. His style is in the tradition of the late Romantic period. This piece is in three movements: I. Allegro non troppo, II. Andante molto, and III. Non troppo allegro. Technically the clarinet part often has long notes with rhythmic activity in the piano and there are many wide skips in the clarinet part. Musically, this work first published in 1893 reflects a strong influence of Brahms. Prof. Heim says this work requires mature performers on both instruments. Duration is about 16 minutes.

C1037: Concertino for Clarinet and Strings (Piano Reduction) by Alan Ridout. Emerson Edition, 1978, SS, 7 + 3 pages. Alan Ridout (1934-1996) was an English composer who showed a strong interest in composing at an early age. He completed six years of professional music study at age 20 with Gordon Jacob and Herbert Howells as his last teachers. This short and enjoyable concertino has energetic first and last (in 5/8 and 6/8) movements with a beautiful slow movement in between. At the marked tempos this is probably an early college level work. Cranking up the tempo of the first movement as on the recording (from a marked 92 to about 126) increases the energy. Duration about 5 minutes at the faster tempo.

WW184: Sonate Sentimentale Op. 169 for Flute or Clarinet and Piano by Ferdinand Ries. Musica Rara/Breitkopf, 1971/2000, SS, 33 + 7/7 pages. Ferdinand Ries (1784-1838) is perhaps best remembered today as a student and friend of Beethoven but he was a successful pianist and composer in his own right. This piece is from a transitional period and includes romantic elements within its classical form. The separate flute and clarinet parts have been written to take advantage of the flute's high register and the lower range of the clarinet. It is in three movements: 1. Allegro moderato, 2. Adagio con moto, and 3. Rondo Allegro. Early college level.

C1278: Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra in G minor Op. 29 (Piano Reduction) by Julius Rietz. Simrock, 2008, SS, 39 + 14 pages. Julius Rietz (1812-1877) was a German composer, conductor and cellist. This work (its interesting history is told in the Preface) fills a gap in the clarinet repertoire. Rietz sought to transfer the musical qualities of works by Mendelssohn-Bartoldy and Schumann to the clarinet concerto. This is the first modern edition of a work (probably written in the 1850's) that had almost vanished. It is in three movements: I. Allegro Agitato, II. Adagio, and III. Allegro vivace.

An advanced work with a duration of about 14 minutes.

The printing of this edition is much better than that of the Menedez version below.

An interesting new edition of this work. The clarinet part has three pages of how the ornamentation should be played and suggested fingerings for the higher altissimo notes. The editor has also provided two new cadenzas as options in place of the ascending chromatic scale at the end of the piece. There is also information on the Rossini arias upon which this work is based.

C1535: Variations for Clarinet and Piano by Gioachino Rossini transcribed and arranged by John Neufeld edited by Mitchell Lurie. Western International Music, 1967, SS, 19 + 6 pages. This piece was written when Rossini was a student in 1809. It was originally for clarinet in C and small orchestra. It serves as an early example of the melody and invention found in his operas. Comparison with the relatively new Italian edition below reveals that the piano part was transposed so a B-flat clarinet could be used to play the original C clarinet part.

C1624: Variazioni in Do Magg. (Variations in C Major) for Clarinet and Orchestra Piano Reduction by Gioachino Rossini edited by Sergio Bosi and Michele Mangani. Edizioni Musicali Eufonia, SS, 11 + 4 pages. This is the same piece as above with parts for both B-flat clarinet and C clarinet (bravo!). The piano parts are similar although this one has one more staff per page (on slightly larger paper) so there are less page turns. There are some minor differences in the clarinet parts with only the ending of the piece significantly different. I suspect that this version is more authentic; the Neufeld/Lurie version more dramatic. We can order the orchestral parts for this piece. The estimated price is $110.

C1993: Tale of the Naughty Gypsy for Clarinet and Piano by Anže Rozman. Alry Publications, 2012, SS, 10 + 4 pages. Anže Rozman (1989-) is a composer from Slovenia. From the music: "Tale of the Naughty Gypsy was written for a very talented young Slovenian clarinetist, Blaž Šparovec. The composition is technically difficult but humanistic [?] in character. The storyline and thus the interpretation is left to ones imagination, however, the only 'rule' is to have fun playing it. Features some very technical Klezmer-style altissimo sections [could be played an octave lower] in addition to a cadenza in which the performer is encouraged to sing and play at the same time." Here is an audio file Šparovec of playing this piece.

C1116: Sonata Op. 2 for Clarinet in A and Piano by Archduke Rudolph of Austria edited by Himie Voxman. Breitkopf (Musica Rara), 1973, SS, 34 + 10 pages. Archduke Rudolph (1788-1831); who was a patron, friend, and composition student of Beethoven; left a number of fine works. This clarinet sonata (published in 1822) was dedicated to Count Fredinand Troyer, the archduke's chief steward and a noted amateur clarinetist.

C1199: Concertino for Clarinet and Piano by Jeanine Rueff. Alphonse Leduc, 1950, SS, 12 + 6 pages. Jeanine Rueff (1922-1999) was a French composer and a professor at the National Superior Conservatory of Music in Paris (this was the concours piece in 1950). This piece is in one movement with three major sections: Allegro (3/4), Adagio (4/4) and Allegro (2/4). Prof. Heim says this is an excellent example of mid-twentieth century French writing for clarinet and as an outstanding work in the concertino repertoire for advanced performers. It is a virtuoso work for clarinet, emphasizing the melodic techniques that display the best qualities of the instrument. The texture alternates between a two-three part linear style to a harmonic approach where many chords are built in fourths, and added tones provide an additional dissonant flavor. The melodic writing encompasses many skips of fourths and wider intervals which are contrasted with chordal arpeggios and modal scales. There is a major cadenza near the end of the Adagio. Duration about 8 minutes. Orchestral parts are available as a rental.

Mathias Rüegg (1952-) who was born in Switzerland is a musician, composer, and bandleader best known as founder and director of the Vienna Art Orchestra from 1977 to 2010. This piece clearly has a jazz influence. It has many tempo changes and quite a bit of mixed meter but all of the whole beat variety (2/4, 3/4, 4/4). College level with a duration of about 4 minutes.

C2012: Meditació (Meditación) for Clarinet (or Flute) and Piano by Josep M. Ruera. Editorial de Música Boileau, 1996, SS, 6 + 2 pages (includes both clarinet and flute parts). Josep M. Ruera (1900-1988) lived his entire life in the Barcelona area of Spain where is studied, played viola and conducted ensembles as well as composing. This is the case of this work, Ruera composed it in 1925, but it did not see the light of day until the 1970s, with the addition of the piece to the Conservatory of Music of Barcelona course programs. The clarinet part is an octave lower than the flute part and there are a few other small differences. Early college level with a duration of about 5 minutes. Here is a video on YouTube. It should give an idea of this piece although there are sound quality issues. Click on the cover image to view the first page of the score.

Edizioni Musicali Eufonia, 2003, 9 + 2 pages plus a CD with recordings of both the piano and string versions of this piece with Ciro Scarponi clarinet. This piece won a First Prize in the 2003 Sanremo International New Music competition. It is dedicated to a handicapped child who died prematurely. This 9 minutes piece is sectional and at generally slow tempos. However, there are plenty of technical challenges. Here is an .mp3 file of the first 3 minutes of the clarinet and piano edition. The clarinet does not enter until after 1:30. The rest of the piece which isn't shown on the score sample or in the audio excerpt is similar to the first clarinet entrance (Andante, un poco adagio) before the 64th notes. Here is a sample of the string version (the clarinet entrance is at about 1:55) which we can order and would be about $130.

C819: Central Park Variations for Clarinet and Piano Lalo Schifrin. Scherzo Music/Keiser Classical, 1984, SS, 13 + 5 pages. The composer wrote: "David Shifrin asked me to write a 'jazz piece' for clarinet and piano and I was seduced by the thought of trying to notate as exactly as possible a group of quasi-improvisational figures in the idiom of Afro-American music. Central Park Variations is almost two pieces in one since everything is in the ear of the beholder. On one hand the structure is based on a traditional twelve-bar blues. But it could also very well be a chaconne in D minor. Anyway, this experience has only confirmed my suspicion that jazz is a very rigorous discipline which allows certain freedom within fixed parameters, while the so-called 'serious' music can be fun (and games)."

C532: Andantino Op. 30 No. 1 by Florent Schmitt. Leduc, 1927, SS, 4 + 1 pages. For clarinet in B-flat and piano. This is a brief (about 3 minutes), beautiful, and somewhat melancholy work. It is in a slow, mostly in 12/8, meter and marked Très calme. While not technically difficult, shaping of phrases is important as is ensemble with the moving line in the piano part.

This piece which is dedicated to Michèle Gingras was written in 1994 but not published until 2013. Schocker's two-part suite for clarinet begins with a beautiful melodic section, quiet and lovely, with no hint of what's to come. Clarinet and piano then launch into an allegro viva movement of fast-paced virtuosity, with trills and runs to a satisfying conclusion. For advanced performers.

C525: Sonata in A minor "Arpeggione" for B flat Clarinet and Piano by Franz Schubert arranged by Douglas Woodfull-Harris. Baerenreiter (BA5682), 1970, SS, 24 + 11 pages. The arpeggione was an instrument similar to guitar but played with a bow that enjoyed a very brief period of popularity in the early 1820s. When it was originally published in 1871 it included a part for the violin (which has a very similar range to the clarinet). Thus it has been considered appropriate for the clarinet and many arrangements have been made over the years. In this edition, the editor has chosen to keep the work in its original key and use the piano part from the authoritative New Schubert Edition.

C1679: 2 Sonatines for Clarinet Op. Posth 137 by Franz Schubert transcribed and edited by Richard Stoltzman. Lauren Keiser Music Publishing, SS, 39 + 15 pages + CD. These are first two of three violin sonatas written by Schubert in 1816. The first is the same as the piece above but this edition is for A clarinet. The second sonata is for B-flat clarinet. The felicitous and satisfying quality of the works is perfect for the clarinet as they are full of memorable melodies contained in a formal clarity, that is nevertheless full of harmonic surprises. This edition includes a CD recording of Richard Stoltzman and the pianist Richard Goode performing them. This is a world premiere edition never before published.

C784: Adagio and Allegro Op. 70 for Bass Clarinet or Clarinet and Piano by Robert Schumann transcribed by Jean-Marc Volta. International Music Diffusion, 2002, 16 + 4 pages. This piece, written in 1849, was originally for horn or  violin or cello and piano. The Adagio is Langsam mit innigem Ausdruck while the Allegro is Rasch und feurig (Allegro con brio). For a clarinetist it rates as an advanced high school level piece. However for the bass clarinet, the range up to altissimo F and other technical demands place it at the early college level. Duration is approximately 9 minutes. The version on the CD is from another arranger but is very similar.

Scarborough Fair (Flowingly, not too slowly), and 6. A Cornish Jigg (Lively, with abandon). As a set these pieces are a little easier than the first group and will be suitable for better high school level clarinetists.

C259: Sonata for Clarinet (Flute, Oboe) and Basso continuo in B-flat major by Gregorio Sciroli edited by Nikolaus Delius with Basso continuo realized by Hugo Ruf. Schott, 1990, SS. This piece includes parts for clarinet, an alternative oboe or flute part, a Basso continuo part for cello, and a score that includes an accompaniment part suitable for keyboard.

C1964: Songs of Sea and Sky for Clarinet and Piano by Peter Sculthorpe. Faber Music, 1991, SS, 19 + 10 pages. Peter Sculthorpe (1929-) is an Australian composer known primarily for his orchestral and chamber music. Songs of Sea and Sky was inspired by a traditional melody from Saibai, an island just south of Papua New Guinea. Much of the music from this area has been strongly influenced by religious music introduced by missionaries in the nineteenth century. The work is one continuous movement with seven parts: Prelude (Liberamente), Saibai (Comodo), Interlude (Liberamente), Mission Hymn, (Moto sostenuto), Dance Song (Ritmico), Lament (Largamente), and Postlude (Largamente). Early college level with a duration of 15:30.

C1028: Concertino for Clarinet and Strings arranged for Clarinet and Piano by Matyas Seiber. Schott, 1953, SS, 442 + 8 pages. Matyas Seiber (1905-1960) was a Hungarian cellist and composer who immigrated to Britain after World War II. Five movements: Toccata (Allegro), Variaziani Semplici (Andante), Scherzo (Allegro), Recitative (Rubato), and Finale (Allegro). Dr Heim wrote, "The music's tonality shifts quietly at times, and there are hints of the use of serial techniques.
There is a musical approach to the dissonance, which employs added tones, complex seventh chords and use of polytonality. The treatment of rhythm gives an interesting forward motion to the music. Melodic material is characterized by scales that have modal tendencies, and features skips of fourths and fifths. The clarinet part is very musical and, at times, is technically challenging. There is a general conservative treatment of range other than a few altissimo a and a-flats. This is one of the most musical of the concertino genre, but with its good twentieth-century style it will appeal to advanced performers."

C915: Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by Roberto Sierra. Subito Music, 2006, SS, 33 + 10 pages. The composer wrote: "Contrary to the beliefs held by some modernist composers, I feel the sonata form still remains a viable and wonderful vessel for my musical imagination . . . The first movement of the Sonata (Salseado) follows the traditional Allegro Sonata pattern, while the second (Delicado y expresivo) is nocturnal in character. The scherzo that follows (Enérgico) and the closing boogie-woogie (Veloz a Rondo) are lively and fast in character, demanding high virtuosism from both players." Duration about 16 minutes.

C1521: Four Icelandic Folksongs for Clarinet and Piano by Thorkell Sigurbjörnsson. Norsk Musikforlag A/S, 1986, SS, 8 + 3 pages. Thorkell Sigurbjörnsson (1938-) is an Icelandic composer. He studied in Reykjavik and the USA and has worked in Reykjavik as a teacher, critic and broadcaster. He is internationally known as a pianist and composer: his works are in diverse styles and genres, tending to assimilate seemingly unrelated elements. These four short pieces are somewhat easier than the composer's Rek. While none have time signatures, this is only a mild challenge in the third piece. Better high school players and above who are looking for something different. Duration about 7 minutes.

C2057: Fifty Times Around the Sun for Clarinet and Piano by Alvin Singleton. Schott, 1999, SS, 11 + 3 pages. Alvin Singleton (1940-) is an American composer. This was commissioned for the 50th birthday of Paul L. King. Fifty Times Around the Sun for clarinet and piano works on two-note motives that have a discernible transformational aspect to them. The clarinet has some poignant and almost soft wailing aspects to it, while the piano answers accordingly, not always responding to the direct appeal of the clarinet, but as if it has its own thoughts on the subject matter that must be addressed first. Fast/slow/fast format with all of the more challenging music for the clarinet in the slow part. Early college level with a duration of 11 minutes. Click on the cover image to view the middle page of the clarinet part (Molto meno mosso in 4/4 mm=66).

Gently flowing, II. Slow, and III. Lively. It looks like fun and should be playable by better high school level clarinetists.

She studied with Sterndale Bennett and George McFarren at the Royal Academy of Music where she was later a professor. This work had its first public performance in 1870 with clarinetist Henry Lazarus and the composer at the piano. At that time it was entitled Duo Concertante for Pianoforte and Clarinet in A which was an appropriate given the importance and challenging nature of the piano part. In three movements: I. Allegro, II. Andante, and III. Allegro Pastoral. The clarinet part is not difficult (early college level). This is a scholarly edition prepared from the composer's manuscript and includes notes on the editing.

C835: Clarinet Concerto Clarinet and Piano by Philip Sparke. Anglo Music, 2004, SS, 34 + 8 pages. This piece was commissioned by Linda Merrick who had some input to the composition. Philip Sparke (1951-) is a contemporary British composer who studied composition, trumpet and piano at the Royal College of Music. The opening movement contains much syncopation and is almost rag-like in style. The slower second movement  initially explores the chalumeau register of the clarinet in a theme that is later taken up by the band while the soloist weaves a filigree descant. This leads straight into the third movement, which is almost bee-bop in style and shows off the jazzier side of the clarinet. College level. (There is a concert band accompaniment available that probably can be played by a good high school band.)

C488: Fantasia and Variations on a Theme of Danzi Op. 81 for clarinet and string quartet (Piano Reduction) by Louis (Ludwig) Spohr edited by Himie Voxman. Musica Rara, 1977, SS. This piece was written in 1814 and premiered in January 1815 by Johann Simon Hermstedt. In one movement with tempos alternating between Allegro molto and Andantino. The clarinet part is primarily based on arpeggio patterns and requires strong technique. Since the strings are mostly in an accompanying role in the original version, this piano reduction should be satisfactory for performance. We also stock the Clarinet and String Quartet edition.

C489: Potpourri Op. 80 for clarinet and piano by Louis (Ludwig) Spohr edited by John Newhill. Musica Rara, 1996, SS, 15 + 8 pages. The full name of this piece is Potpourri for clarinet on Themes of Winter and it was first performed by Johann Simon Hermstedt in 1811. The form of the Potpourri is the stand one for shorter solo works of the period - a slow introduction, followed by a theme and variations, concluding with a finale loosely based on the theme. Spohr used two melodies from Peter von Winter's opera Das unterbrochene Opferfest. The original was with orchestra with this edition based on what is believed to be Spohr's arrangement for clarinet and piano. A showpiece.

C1494: Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra (Piano Reduction) by Halsey Stevens. Peermusic, 1971, SS, 24 + 8 pages. Commissioned by friends and students of Lee Gibson, it has three movements: Andante non troppo-Allegro (3/4), Quasi Adagio (9/8) and Allegro moderato (2/4). There is a cadenza in the second movement. Prof. Heim wrote that the fast movements have rhythmic drive; the style is tonal and harmonies are fairly conservative. This work is written with great sensitivity for the clarinet although the clarinet is more a part of the ensemble than a solo instrument. This is a very nice addition to the repertoire for advanced players but the work sounds best with the string accompaniment.

C382: Suite for Clarinet (or Viola) and Piano by Halsey Stevens. C.F. Peters, 1959.

Dr. Heim wrote that this is one of the most pleasant works in the entire clarinet repertoire with the slow movements displaying the clarinet at its best. In the third movement, 7/8 meter may present rhythmic challenges. College level and advanced performers will want to program this work.

Stocks (1884-1956) was a British organist, choirmaster, and composer. It begins Andante grazioso, with several tempo changes after that.

This edition is presented in honor of the centennial of the ballet's premiere, and is intended to give soloists and accompanists a chance to perform two movements (I. Introduction - A Kiss of the Earth and II. Dance of the Young Maidens) from this monumental work. The movements can be performed separately, and the first movement can be played as a solo without piano accompaniment. Surprisingly, for a work that was released for several instruments at the same time, this is an advanced work that will required college level skill. Includes some flutter tonguing.

It is in one continuos movement. After a short Maestoso introduction, the rest of the piece is Allegro moderato with a cadenza near the end. While not technically difficult it does include what is essentially a four octave scale to altissimo C.

Prof. Heim wrote that the work is written in the style of the late Romantic period and is dramatic, inspired by interesting rhythms. He found the harmonic material is interesting, and the changes of key are, at times, surprising. Melodic material is usually approached by step, but often it involves various skips. The piano part is quite pianistic and, although it is an accompaniment, the part often has its own character. He concluded that this is good music written for the advanced clarinetist, and the work warrants performances on professional recitals.
