This site is home to Alea Publishing & Recording, specializing in music for the bass clarinet.
We offer a growing catalog of creative, artistic transcriptions and new works for bass clarinet solo & ensemble.
About the Music
Tango Clarón is a piece for dedicated to the great bass clarinetist Sebastián Tozzola that tries to retain some of the Argentinian traditional music that he is great fan of, such as Tango and Chamamé with very passionate rhythms.
The single-movement piece lies mostly in the lower register of the bass clarinet, but does not require an extended-range instrument. The solo score is four pages in length, and published loose-leaf to avoid page turns.
Purchasing this edition will allow you to download PDF files for the music. If you would prefer to receive a hard-copy, please purchase that edition instead.
About the Composer
Nicolás Enrich is an Argentinean bandoneonist and composer. As a bandoneonist, he has played with most of the best musicians and singers in the tango scene such as Leopoldo Federico, Nestor Marconi, Maria Graña, Guillermo Fernandez among others. He is part of the National orchestra of Argentinian music Juan de Dios Filiberto and the contemporary tango group Juan Pablo Navarro Septet. As a composer he writes for a variety of ensembles, including music for the recent recording by Quinteto Grande called Circus.
Duo Alea, the father-daughter duo of Michael and Kimberly Davenport, began performing music for bass clarinet and piano in 1996. As performers searching for new repertoire and teachers working with students eager to develop as performers, it quickly became clear that there was a need for more repertoire featuring the bass clarinet. Filling this need became the mission of Alea Publishing & Recording.
Since our first publication in 1997, the Alea catalog has now grown to include over 300 titles. We pride ourselves on the accuracy and quality of our sheet music, as well as our ability to ship directly to customers around the world.
We are proud of the diversity of our catalog in terms of the inclusion of works by composers and arrangers from around the world. We are interested in continuing to expand this diversity, representing musical ideas from around the world.
Following Michael's passing in 2019, Kim has taken over solo management of Alea Publishing. In 2020, Alea established the Dolphy Prize, an annual composition award for new works for bass clarinet by black composers.
