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.
Mozart's Concerto K.191 for bassoon is quite effective in this arrangement for bass clarinet and piano by Dalton Ringey. The work is from early in Mozart's output (composed in 1774 in Salzburg) and is therefore modest in its scope compared to some of his later concertos. Maintaining the key of the original (B-flat for bassoon) places this arrangement in the comfortable key of C major for the bass clarinet soloist. Any of the three movements, or the work in its entirety, would make an excellent choice for contest or audition.
Extended-range instrument required. Score: 25 pages, spiral bound; Part: 6 pages, booklet.
Listen to the arranger's own performance:
Duo Alea began performing music for bass clarinet and piano in 1996. As both 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 Bach Suites, the Alea catalog now includes well over 200 titles. As performing musicians ourselves, 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.
As our catalog grows, we offer an open call for scores - e-mail us for more information! In addition to new works, we are also interested to consider artistic transcriptions for publication. 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.
