Con moto, 2. Lento, and 3. Vivo] then followed and Lindsey
performed the piece as part of her M.Mus bass clarinet recital in the

later joined the faculty. He composed symphonies, oratorios and

is a multi-sectional work in one movement (duration 12:00). Prof. Heim
has written that the style is highly romantic, but dissonance is used
for emphasis. While writing for clarinet is lyric; there are also
periods of technical flourish and climax. The work requires great
breath endurance and excellent finger dexterity and is suggested for

|C2172x: Spotlights on the Bass Clarinet
(Bassclarinet) for Bass Clarinet and Piano by Jan Haderman.
De Haske, 1992, 25 + 9 pages. Jan Haderman (1952-) is a Belgian
composer best known for his works for winds. This three movement piece
requires a low C bass clarinet. It was the first piece featured in
William Hayter's article Bass
Clarinet Solos for Students (The Clarinet, Vol. 41, No. 4,
September 2014). Each movement is sectional or has changes in tempo.
The first two movements are reminiscent of the fast and slow movements
of classical and romantic concertos. The third movement includes a jazz
waltz, a cadenza, a blues, and another waltz. Hayter suggests a single
movement be chosen for study by a high school student but I believe it
will take a college level performer to prepare the entire work for
performance in a reasonable amount of time. There is a concert band
accompaniment we can order. Here is a video
of the first movement from YouTube with piano and an ad lib drummer.
There are several other videos online, as well. Click of the cover
