I am looking for good showpieces. I have always been very considerate of my
pianists in the past, and thus far have not pursued investigating this type
of repertoire. But, I am feeling the need to have more "flashy" pieces in
my arsenal, mostly for encores. My pianists in the past have generally
loathed the "boom-chuck" accompaniments that these pieces usually have in
the piano parts.
The question I wish to pose is this. Can anyone suggest clarinet showpieces
that have a reasonably interesting piano part; preferably one that
demonstrates the pianist's abilities as much as the clarinetist's? I am
totally green in this area of repertoire, so any suggestions will be warmly
received. Thank you in advance.
