Todays clarinetist is obligated, by contemporary literature, to play in the altissimo register more often and for longer phrases than ever before. Clarinet pedagogue William R. Higgins has transcribed for the clarinet Thomas Filas widely accepted studies for flute to help clarinetists to extend their range and improve their proficiency in this register as they must in the chalumeau and clarion registers. A much-needed text for the serious student of the clarinet.
The Importance of These Studies Todays clarinetist is obligated, by contemporary literature, to play in the altissimo register more often and for longer phrases than was required in most of the literature of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. For this reason, clarinetists need to be as proficient and relaxed in the altissimo register as in the chalumeau and clarion registers. In the past, etudes have been long works centering on a technique to be acquired. Concentrating on the altissimo register in this manner makes the performer become tense and have difficulty listening to the high pitches for a long period of time. Filas has written these ninety etudes as three-line exercises. They are short, musical, enjoyable, and effective for practicing. The Filas studies were selected because of their excellent acceptance and success with flute students. They have been transcribed to keys that focus on extending the clarinetists range gradually from D6 to A6. Recommended Approach For the intermediate student, the etudes should be assigned one at a time. The advanced student will be able to handle a page for each lesson and complete the exercises in a semester. Students should be given instruction in the best fingerings to use in the key being studied. Practice should begin at a metronome marking of q.=60 and should increase each day by approximately eight degrees until the next lesson, when the etudes are performed at about q.=100 to 120. Practicing with a metronome is critical to the development of a smooth, even technique. William R. Higgins.
