Joan Tower - Associated Music Pub.
Reduction for clarinet (or basset clarinet) and piano. The basset clarinet (with an extended range to low C) has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Many modern composers have been answering this trend by writing new music for the instrument. Joan Tower's Clarinet Concerto, while performable on the standard A clarinet, takes advantage of the basset clarinet's extended range with a few melodic excursions to notes beneath E. This 19-minute work was recorded on Summit Records pianist Eckhart Selheim.
