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
Minor changes have been made to Telemann's Concerto for Viola and Orchestra to make it accessible for the student-level bass clarinetist. This includes changing double stops to grace notes where possible. Additionally, multiple passages have been lowered an octave to make the piece more accessible for a student-level player. Throughout the piece, slurs have been added as suggestions for phrasing, though the performer is encouraged to find what works best and makes the most musical sense for them.
The only change to the piano part is that some passages were condensed into one voice for ease of reading, though no notes were removed.
Piano score: 19 pages, spiral bound; bass clarinet part: 6 pages, booklet. Extended-range instrument NOT required.

About the Arranger
Outside of percussion, Skyler Hedblom specializes in music engraving and notation, and has completed an internship with Alea Publishing. He also is an aspiring composer, arranger, and orchestrator.
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.
