We offer a growing catalog of creative, artistic transcriptions and new works for bass clarinet solo & ensemble.
About the Work
La réflexion et la dispersion de rayons, which translates to English as 'the reflection and dispersion of rays', is an outstanding new work for solo bass clarinet by the young Japanese composer Azusa Yomogida. The work, with a duration of approximately 9'50", is highly dramatic and expressive, with frequent fluctuation of tempo and use of the full dyamic and lyrical capabilities of the instrument.
Although challenging, the work does not require the use of modern techniques or extreme range. In fact, the work does not require an extended-range instrument, making it accessible for a wider range of performers.
Extended-range instrument NOT required. The score is published loose-leaf to avoid awkward page turns in performance.
About the Composer
Azusa Yomogida began playing the piano when she was four years old, and began composing when she was just 14. She graduated from Shobi University in Music Media at the top of her class.
Asuza has taken part in a number of prestigious composition competitions worldwide, including Future in Tokyo, Festival Futura in France and the international electronic music festival Silence 2008 in Italy.
She participated in IRCAM Stage Overview Program in Paris in July 2011 and has also been studying Electroacoustic music with Eric Daubresse, Gregoire Lorieux, Emmanuel Jourdan, Jean Lochard, and Mikhail Malt.
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 over 250 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.
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.
In June 2020, we announced the creation of the Dolphy Prize for new works for bass clarinet by Black composers.
