Canzoni for Clarinet and Piano
From the Publisher
Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583-1643) was a keyboard virtuoso and prolific composer active in the early 17th century, and influential for important composers of the later Baroque period, including Bach. This publication makes available for bass clarinet and piano duo four Canzoni originally composed for bass and continuo.
The four short pieces alternate between slow and fast tempi, with sections of simple imitation alternating with more expressive, lightly ornamented passages. Provides the young player with exposure to pre-baroque repertoire of accessible difficulty level and comfortable range; would also make an excellent addition to a recital program for an established bass clarinet/piano duo. Original keys and range maintained throughout.
Extended-range instrument NOT required. Piano score: 18 pages, spiral bound; Part: 11 pages, staple bound.
