About the Music
Anton Stamitz (1750-c.1809) was a German composer and violinist. He was the son of Johann and brother of Carl Stamitz, both notable musicians. His father was his initial violin teacher and undoubtedly influenced his compositions: a number of symphonies as well as smaller works for strings and woodwind. This duet is from book one, of six duets for violin and cello, which have been arranged for the bass clarinet and oboe.
Catherine Underhill is the oboist of Hacha Duo, who are a woodwind duo, dedicated to expanding the repertoire for clarinets and oboes. This duet has been especially arranged Hacha duo’s combination of bass clarinet and oboe. We are delighted to share it with other woodwind duos who are looking for some new repertoire.
Duo Score: 12 pages. Extended-range instrument NOT required for bass clarinet part.

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.
