Part of the Laureate Series of Contest Solos. Clarinetists will derive both pleasure and learning when using these recordings. They feature some of the most talented soloists, first chair players with major orchestras. Each piece is performed by the soloist, then the accompaniment is provided for the at-home player. The compositions are all drawn from widely used State Contest Pieces, and graded for each level. The scores are annotated by the soloist, noted clarinetist Jerome Bunke. Suggestions for their performance are included. A Master Class!

Includes a high-quality printed solo part annotated with performance suggestions and a compact disc with complete versions (with soloist) followed by piano accompaniments to each piece, minus the soloist.

    As a mature student of the clarinet for the last two years, I have really enjoyed this interesting collection of relatively modern music composed for the clarinet. There is a good variety of pieces which are a pleasure to play. I liked the explanatory notes about all the pieces. The...

    accompaniments, both with a the soloist and without, are excellent. I would have liked to have also had the sheet music for the accompaniments so the pieces could be used for performance. But overall, this is an excellent album.
