The throaty and expressive voice of the clarinet pairs well with the guitar, and we'd like to help you discover that great synergy. In July, all of our scores for this combination are marked down 20%! Here are some of our favourites:
A Love Song for Clarinet and Guitar - Kevin Love
When we're in love, that heady, jazzy feeling makes us want to dance...
Danza Espanola No. 5 - Enrique Granados, arr. K. Krantz
Enrique Granados (1867 - 1916) was a Spanish pianist and composer of classical music. His music is in a uniquely Spanish style and, as such, representative of musical nationalism. Enrique Granados was also a talented painter in the style of Francisco Goya.Granados wrote piano music, chamber music (a piano quintet, a piano trio, music for violin and piano), songs, zarzuelas, and an orchestral tone poem based on Dante's Divine Comedy.
Gently Does It - Gunar Ulrich
"Gently Does it" is a meditative piece for Clarinet and Guitar. The clarinet plays the expressive melody while the guitarist plays sustained, arpeggiated chords throughout. The directions are minimal. The players are asked to play 'gently', giving them the opportunity to find the appropriate balance between the instruments, and to give their interpretation of the ebb and flow of the music. The piece is subtitled....'a meditation'.....the aim is to project a feeling of calm.
Three Catalan Folk Songs - Traditional, arr. K. Love
These traditional Catalan songs (El Testament D’Amelia, L’Hereu Riera, Canço Del Lladre) were arranged for solo guitar by the legendary Spanish guitarist Miguel Llobet. They appear here transcribed and arranged for clarinet and guitar.
El Choclo - Angel Villoldo, arr, K, Krantz
Ángel Villoldo (1861 - 1919) was an Argentine musician and one of the pioneers of tango. He was born south of the city of Buenos Aires. He was a lyricist, composer and one of the major singers of the era. "El Choclo" (Spanish: meaning "The Ear of Corn" more accurately "The Corn Cob") is a popular song written by Ángel Villoldo, allegedly written in honour of and taking its title from the nickname of the proprietor of a nightclub, who was known as El Choclo. It is probably one of the most popular tangos in Argentina.
