Baroque/20th Century. An original work by 20th century musicologist and Albinoni biographer Remo Giazotto (1910-1998), penned to sound like the works of Baroque composer Tomaso Albinoni.

An untraditional theme and eight variations. Catchy melody, each varation alters from slow to fast to slow, etc. The fast movements have difficult passages which sometimes leap up to the altissimo register. This piece is exciting, but technically difficult.

Baroque. A quick paced two movement piece which ranges 2 octaves and remains in F. The Bourree has a bold cut time melody with some leaps that pop up to high C and D. The Gigue is in 6/8 time and explores the middle to high register with consistent eigthnote patterns. Range is 1.5 octaves, from A4 (2nd space A) to D6 (D above the staff). Wonderful melody which lays well on the clarinet, yet challenging quick tempo with some high notes. (solo sample pages)
