ABRSM exam syllabus

From the Publisher

Clarinet studies in the past have been predominantly concerned with technical problems only. This collection, however, marks a new departure by selecting from the works of the great masters, passages which lend themselves to the treatment of particular technical problems, but they also introduce musical values which are entirely lacking in literature devoted to the study of the instrument. These studies are based on music not originally written for the instrument, and have been freely adapted without impairing their proper musical significance. Besides treating particular problems, these studies include many styles from Bach to the present day, with which every ambitious musician should be thoroughly acquainted.
