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 summer of 2007."

C1723x: Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by William Alwyn. Boosey & Hawkes, 1963, SS, 25 + 7 pages. William Alwyn (1905-1985) was an English composer who studied at the Royal Academy where he later joined the faculty. He composed symphonies, oratorios and concertos, but was most successful as a composer for films. This sonata 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 mature performers.

New copy with partially dog eared right top corner. $3.00 off the regular price.
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 image to view the first page of the bass clarinet part.
