Clarinet Music with Piano

Composers A-K
(Including Piano Reductions, Music with Organ, and with Percussion)

(Updated 22 June 2017)

This page has music for clarinet with piano accompaniment (including piano reductions of works with orchestral accompaniment). There are a small number for clarinet and organ. There are several pieces with bass and drums (one without piano) and another for clarinet and percussion. All collections of clarinet music (some have piano accompaniment) are on the Clarinet Music Collections page. Items are listed in alphabetical order by composer whose last names begin with the letters A-K (mostly, use the Find Command in your browser or Search from our menu, if necessary).

All music specifically for BASS CLARINET is now on its own page. There are works on this page for basset horn and basset clarinet. We have marked music for E-flat clarinet with this symbol: for E-flat Clarinet


We have drawn on the works of Dr. Norman Heim on clarinet literature (which we now publish) for comments on some of these pieces.


The small CD covers are linked to CDs with a performance of the listed piece. (The performance could be from a different edition, especially if it is an older, public domain piece.)

The Perilous Shore, II. Hoedown (Mad Cow), and III. Put Your Loving Arms Around Me. An advanced, professional level piece.
Gnarly Buttons - Michael Collins
"Adams' most personal and cathartic work, Gnarly Buttons is a memorial tribute to his father, using the clarinet, his father's instrument, to trace and salute his father's pervasive influence upon his own life and career. It opens with the scales his father taught him to practice, and then alludes to Benny Goodman (whom his father revered), the marching bands and community orchestra in which they played together, and the emergence and development from such roots of Adams' own eclectic musical style. It ends with the confusion, pain and vulnerability of his father's final dementia (during which he became obsessed that someone was trying to steal his instruments) and a brief, peaceful elegy. A curious mélange when heard in the abstract, Gnarly Buttons becomes acutely poignant in context." -- Copyright 2001 by Peter Gutmann used with permission.

C2101: Pacific Serenade for clarinet and piano by Miguel del Aguila. Peermusic, 2001/2013, SS, 15 + 6 pages. Miguel del Águila (1957-) is an Uruguayan-born American composer of contemporary classical music. Written in 1998 and originally for clarinet and string quartet, Pacific Serenade was commissioned by Pacific Serenades Ensemble who premiered it 1998 in Los Angeles. In general the music is extremely quiet, delicate, sensuous and sentimental. The sensuousness is created by the use of South American folkloric idioms, especially the Brazilian choro, which is at times combined with Blues melodies and Jazz harmony. In this version for clarinet and piano, some movements are expanded and some piano harmonies are new. The clarinet part remains close to the original. Early college level with some glissandos. Here is a performance of the first movement (of four with the clarinet tacit on the very brief third movement).

C1077: Chant d'Amour for clarinet and piano by Isaac Albeniz arranged by H. Delacroix. Alphonse Leduc, 1922, SS, 4 + 1 pages. This is a very familiar melody. The rhapsodic nature of this piece and the 8 measure half step shift in the middle of the piece (without changing key signature) will add to challenge for the intermediate student.

The work requires great breath endurance and excellent finger dexterity and is suggested for mature performers.

Early college level. There is a shaky video on YouTube: Part 1, Part 2.

"The first movement is in roughly Sonata-Allegro form and has a strong Goodman nuance, as does the slow 12-beat-to-the-bar second movement. The last movement alternates a Brazilian chorino with an ebullient Ravelian waltz". The movements are marked: I. Allegro, II. Cantabile (with a jazz feeling), and III. Scherzo-finale (Quasi una cadenza, ma in tempo)/Allegro assai (A chorinho tempo, slightly swung)/(concluding) CRASSLY GRAND! There are a few contemporary techniques such as growling and a slap key.

C1616: Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major for Clarinet and Orchestra (Piano Reduction) by Ernesto Cavallini edited by Davide Pedrazzini. Edizioni Musicali Eufonia, SS, 18 + 11 pages. The preface by Luigi Magistrelli (in Italian and English) provides a brief biography of Cavallini. It also describes this piece of which this is the first publication since the original in 1845 as using Weber as a model and writing "with typical Italian bel canto lines and tricky technical passages, [it was] composed and conceived for his own [Cavallini's] virtuoso qualities." It is in the theme and variation form (one reference calls this a operatic fantasy based on a theme from Joseph Weigl) with an opening Allegro, then Adagio assai followed by a cadenza, and then the theme (Andantino). This is followed by four virtuoso variations and a concluding coda. College level. We can order the orchestral parts (1/2/2/2 2/0/0/0 Strings Timpani) for this piece. The price would be about $99.95.

C2016: Clarinet Concertino for Clarinet and String Orchestra (Piano Reduction) by Jordi Cervelló. Editorial de Música Boileau, 2009, SS, 24 + 10 pages. This clarinet concertino is based on the composers Concertino for Violin and String Orchestra, composed in 1993. At that time he had already sketched both versions for solo clarinet and flute. It is a work of length similar to the concertos of the Baroque and divided in three typical movements. Two quick framing one slow. The first two - Allegro burlesco and Adagio cantabile follow the ABA form. The third begins with a cadenza using thematic material from the previous slow movement to link without interruption with the Presto. It uses main ideas from the first movement but in 3/4 instead of 4/4 and at a somewhat faster tempo. Another clarinet cadenza leads to the jovial and brief final coda. College level. This page from the publisher's web site has recorded excerpts and some of the score of the orchestral version (which didn't all display properly).

C616: Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by Aaron Copland. Boosey & Hawkes, 1988, SS, 32 + 12 pages. Transcribed by the composer from his Sonata for Violin and Piano (1943). The clarinet part was edited by Timothy Paradise. In three movements: Andante semplice, Lento, and Allegretto giusto. Prof. Norman Heim wrote: The style is typical of Copland at the time of Appalachian Spring and has similarities with the Concerto for clarinet. There is some use of polytonality and minimal dissonance with a score has a lean texture that contrasts with full sonorities. The clarinet part is not adventuresome but extends in range to the middle of altissimo register. Musically, the work requires advanced performers with the piano accompaniment, perhaps, more demanding than clarinet part. This transcription is excellent music by one of the outstanding composers of the twentieth century.

Devienne, Francois (1759-1803) was a flutist and bassoonist, and professor at the Paris Conservatory. In three movements: Allegro con spiritoso (C), Adagio (2/4) and Rondo allegretto (6/8).  Professor Heim wrote that the solo part is scored principally in the upper two registers and is florid with ornamentation figures making this work more difficult. The Adagio is played with one beat to the measure and has many fast notes while the Rondo has a Mozartian flavor. This is good material for college and professional recitals.

C717: Summer Solstice for Clarinet and Strings Piano Reduction by Daniel Dorff. MMB Music, 1993, 26 + 10 pages. This work is for clarinet in A. The composer wrote: "In 1986 I began a 'Lyric Quintet' for Clarinet and String Quartet, composing two movements of the projected three that year. . . . Coming back 6 years later with a fresh point of view, I decided this would be better for Clarinet and String Orchestra. This change to a larger string ensemble allows the thick jazz chords to be played more richly and smoothly, allows the contrasts of solo strings and tuttis, and brings the advantages of having a conductor. Having started life as intimately blended chamber music rather than a concerto, the music tends to use the clarinet as a balanced ensemble member at least as much as a soloist, and there are also many solo passages for strings. Only the third movement was originally conceived for full string orchestra, leading the final movement to have more dramatic contrasts between clarinet and strings. The music has a light, summery feel, and the friendly relationship of the clarinet to the strings somehow struck me as a solstice-like meeting point, therefore the title 'Summer Solstice.' "

C804: Concerto for Clarinet and Piano by Richard Faith. Southern Music Co., 1989, SS, 38 + 9 pages. Richard Faith (1926-) is an American music educator and composer of operas, concertos and chamber music. This work is dedicated to John Denman. It is in three movements: Andante con moto (6/8), Lento (2/4) and Vivace (6/8). Professor Heim wrote "The style is conservative with very little twentieth century dissonance. Tonal centers change rather quickly involving many accidentals in both parts. Melodic material is lyrical and emphasizes the best qualities of the clarinet. There is a vast range of rhythmic groupings in the clarinet which requires great finger facility in fast passages. This work has excellent music and requires advanced performers on both instruments." Range to altissimo B. Click on the cover image to view the first page of the clarinet part.

C824: Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra (Piano Reduction) by Jean Françaix. Editions Musicales Transatlantiques, 2013, 45 + 18 pages. This is a new edition of this work. It was decided that the piano reduction in the previous edition was too difficult to execute correctly. A new one has been prepared by Claude Françaix (the composer's daughter) and Tiziana de Carolis. In 1992 this work was performed by Phillipe Cuper under the direction of the composer. It was determined that the tempos were too fast in each movement and that has been corrected here. This is a difficult contemporary (1968) French concerto in four movements: Allegro, Scherzando, Andantino, and Allegrissimo.

The clarinet part requires ample technique; although range is limited mostly to the lower two registers. The piano part has the greater challenge; requiring a strong, mature performer. This is good material for the college level player.

C1126: Romance for Clarinet and Piano by Edward German edited by Colin Bradbury. Lazarus Edition, 1998, SS, 11 + 2 pages. Edward German (1862-1936) studied at the Royal Academy of Music, studying harmony and counterpoint with Prout and winning organ and violin as well as composition prizes. Although eventually overshadowed by that of his friend Elgar, German's music enjoyed great success in the later Victorian and Edwardian periods, ranging from symphonies, suites and concert overtures to ballads and salon pieces. The Romance dates from German's early years as a professional composer, and was originally one of a pair (of which the other is now lost). The first known performance was by Oscar Street (1869-1923), a pupil of George Clinton, at the Oxford University Musical Union on January 29, 1890. This piece is not difficult and is suitable for intermediate level clarinetists.

C514: George Gershwin's Preludes for Piano adapted for solo clarinet and piano by James Cohn. Warner Bros., 1987, SS, 12 + 6 pages. This piece is often referred to as the Three Preludes for Piano. This arrangement is by composer James Cohn. The first and third preludes are quite challenging and will require a player with excellent technique. The second prelude (which is for A clarinet) is much easier and can probably be played by most competent high school players and above.

C2441: George Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue transcribed for clarinet and piano by Frederic Cellier. Editions Henry Lemoine, 2013, SS, 38 + 9 pages. From Gregory Barrett' review in Clarinet: French clarinetist Frédéric Cellier has followed in the footsteps of George Gershwin's original orchestrator, Ferde Grofé, ... Cellier's full page written introduction to this transcription recounts Gershwin's compositional inspirations and the importance to him of the clarinet as well as the piano. Cellier's version retains the entire form of the well-known Grofé orchestration and, for the most part, retains the solo piano's writing in the clarinet/piano version. Smartly, Cellier does occasionally move melodic writing from the piano into the clarinet to more equally balance the role of clarinet and piano. The clarinet plays the expected licks and the main melodic lines whether they are from woodwind, string or brass in Grofé's familiar version. Both musicians will be very busy from start to finish, even the more so if the clarinetist takes the bass clarinet option in place of clarinet for two sixteen measure sections. Have fun!

C2287: George Gershwin's Three Preludes for Clarinet and Piano transcribed and arranged by Charles Neidich. Lauren Keiser Music Publishing, 1927/2014, SS, 10 + 4 (+1) pages. Taking inspiration from Jascha Heifetz' masterful transcription of George Gershiwn's wonderfully original Three Preludes, clarinetist Charles Neidich has created a work that functions as a real duet between the clarinet and piano. Rather than simply transpose the Heifetz violin part, Neidich adapted the work to fit the clarinet, taking what works well and changing other parts, often returning to Gershwin's original to fit the character of the clarinet. The transcription includes an A clarinet part in E minor for those who find the second Prelude's original key of D-sharp minor daunting.

C434: Sonata II for B-flat Clarinet and Piano by Arsenio Giron. Woodwindiana, 2003, SS, 24 + 8 pages. Arsenio Giron was born in Renteria, Spain in 1932 and immigrated to New York in 1942.

The quotation in the Rondo Caprice(Vivace/Andantino) is presumably from another early song, as yet unidentified.

C1578: Concerto for clarinet and orchestra (piano reduction) by Ida Gotkovsky. Editions Musicales Transatlantiques, 1968, SS, 42 + 15 pages. Ida Gotkovsky (1933-) is a French composer who studied with Nöel Gallon, Oliver Messiaen, Tony Aubin and Nadia Boulanger. She has won many prizes for her compositions. Concurs du Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris and dedicated Ulysse Delecluse. In three movements: 1. Misterioso-quasi cadenza-ad libitum, 2. Perpetuum Mobile (Prestissimo), and 3. Final. Prof. Heim wrote: The first movement begins with a long section of ad libituum (but measured) clarinet passages with limited participation by the accompaniment. The third movement has two cadenzas: the first begins the movement and is one page long; the second is brief (in the middle of the movement). This concerto is of major proportions and is reminiscent of Bozza's style and, in a limited way, the Tomasi concerto. The clarinet part demands a facile, quick and flexible virtuosic technique although the range is just a little over three octaves. The pianist has a difficult part with many full chords requiring all fingers and many passages in octaves. The harmonic material is complex with some polytonality, mixed seventh chords and added tones while the melodic material for clarinet can be lyric but is usually flamboyant. This work has excellent music and is at the top of the literature for the most advanced player. A CD of this piece is currently unavailable but there are still some sound samples here.

The second movement (Interlude) serves as a bridge into another emotional space, colored by sadness and loss. The final movement (Agitato) transforms the material from the opening movement into an insistent dance exploding with dark, agitated energy. For advanced performers. Here is an audio recording of the first two movements.

C1204: Ritual Clarinet & Piano by Katherine Hoover. Papagena Press, 1991, SS, 24 + 7 pages. The composer wrote: "Ritual was written in 1989 and is influenced by my study of Greek folk music, which features the clarinet as a virtuoso solo instrument. The piece is in three distinct parts. The first consists mostly of isolated gestures; a sort of recitative. This moves into a mournful, measured duet that builds in steady motion to a climax that recalls some of these opening gestures. This is followed by a fast, at times almost frenzied dance. Many of the runs, interval patterns and rhythms, particularly in the dance, are related to the Greek tradition."

C934: American Standard for Clarinet and Piano by Michael Kaulkin. Swirly Music, 1994, SS, 16 + 7 pages. Originally written for British clarinetist Peter Furniss, this single-movement work has an overtly theatrical aspect, harkening back to the composer's spiritual home in musical theater. A dialogue is established between two contrasting but thematically related sections. The slow, lyrical, aching theme heard at the outset becomes interspersed with a second that is more mischievous, even grotesque in character. Constant development of this faster material provides a means of pushing forward with considerable virtuosity to the composition's rather resigned conclusion, where both themes (and moods) are finally juxtaposed. An advanced work with a duration of about 9 minutes. Here is an audio recording which also shows the score.

C547: Second Sonate in B major for Clarinet in A and Piano Op. 139b by Sigfrid Karg-Elert. Zimmermann, 1965, SS, 27 + 7 pages. The piece is in two extended movements:  Ziemlich bewegt and Sehr rasch, mit íœbermut. Each movement has several sections. There are many markings of style and tempo, mostly in German. The piano part is technically and rhythmically difficult (especially written in B major key), with many added accidentals. While the clarinet part is conservative in range is it virtuosic in content. The rhythm in both parts is complicated, requiring the ensemble to be exact for a good performance. There is a wonderful chamber music relationship between the clarinet and piano.  This is an advanced work for the best players. (Description from Clarinet Literature in Outline by Dr. Norman Heim.)
