    Clarinet Compositions

    Y'all All,

    Here are some of my original works for Bb clarinet:

    1. "Clarinet Study Number Six"

    2. "Clarinet Study Number Four"

    3. "Clarinet Study Number Two"

    There is a degree of performance difficulty in these works, but they all can be (and have been) played by a live human-type being.

    Regards,
    Larry G. Alexander

    Hi Larry, These make some great studies with the rhythms and lots of interesting changes. I don't play the instrument, but I believe these would be of great use to a band teacher needing to keep his students interested and awake. I've toiled my way through a lot of piano and guitar studies that were snoozers. Good work on these! John

    Hi again Larry, I was just thinking towards the end of No. 2, it starts to sound like a rah-rah high school "fight" song for the local team.

    Our former governor has moved on to the "hall of shame" where there is lots of room for his former colleagues and current members of the Senate and Congress to join him.

    Hello, Larry - Happy day after the day after--(how many?) -your Birthday! I feel like we're still celebrating with these invigorating, bright Clarinet pieces. Highly enjoyable, and very nice recordings of them too. Thanks for once again entertaining me and the rest of us here with more music from your seemingly endless font of inspiration.

    I hope that it is "endless", at least for a few more years.

    Thanks for your comments.

    A "degree" of performance difficulty. haven't played a clarinet for years (probably like 30) but learnt it at school. I wouldn't ever have been able to play some of this (even at half the speed) big leaps are reaaly . Still they sound rather good, must be some ace players about.

    Keep up the good work

    I know one local clarinettist chap who is able to perform even my most difficult compositions for that instrument - some with difficulty. He is amazing...big leaps and all. He even constructs his own reeds which are a tad thicker than normal.

    Thanks for listening.
