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 brilliant Duos, originally for violin and viola, are now available in this versatile transcription for clarinet and bass clarinet or bass clarinet duet. Each Duo is a large, three-movement work providing excellent musical and technical challenges for the bass clarinetist. While the transcription works well for clarinet/bass clarinet duet, the rich sound of two bass clarinets, reminiscent of basset horns, is especially suitable for this music. Extended-range instrument required for lower part. Duo score: 31 pages, spiral bound.

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.
