Harry Sparnaay??? He's a dutch bass clarinet player,
no he doesn't play in an orchestra, who has increased the
repertoire for the instrument by over 400 works. He also
does a bit of composing on the side. For a detailed desription
of him see the book "Clarinet Virtuosi of Today" by Pamela Weston.
He's listed in there and Weston does a prety thorough job. But,
I've had the opportunity to hear him in person a few times and I don't
recall ever coming out of a concert that amazed. He's simply wonderful,
his technique, control, and ability to do just about anything he wants
with the BASS clarinet. I highly recommend going to see him or buying
his recordings if one has the chance. They are rather difficult to get in the
US however.

Incidentally he's the dedicatee of the most difficult piece of music
that I've ever had the opportunity to play. It's by Brian Ferneyhough
and it's entitled "Time and Motion Study I" for solo bass clarinet.
For all of you bass players out there... if you're looking for a worthy
challenge, this should keep you busy and satisfy any boredom!
It's published by C.F. Peters. Have fun and I hope someone on the list
can remember more about Sparnaay off the top of their head than I can!

Have seen the name "Harry Sparnaay" recently inconnection with "bass
clarinet matters."
I judge he is with one of the major orchestras, but I can find nothing
about him locally. Can anyone provide some information on this gentleman?
Thanks...Fred S..
