Since I am going to be performing Cosi in February, and since I was *SO*
excited that I had all of the required clarinets (A, Bb and C), and since
I was *SO* excited about being excited that I impulsively went out and
bought a Blayman stand with 4 peg attachments for about $150 which I don't
have, and now Dan tells me that I need a basset clarinet or even multiple
basset clarinets, I think I am going to go home and bash myself in the
skull with my new 500 pound Blayman stand (yeah, boy, it's REAL heavy!).
(Maybe Dan would like to tell me where the basset clarinet parts are, or
how I can find out for myself, i.e., library research).
