THE DELURKING JOLT
The Canadian Music Centre has one work for unnaccompanied clarinet!? A
search of my unnaccompanied solos satchel reveals [just a minute here] no
fewer than 25 works available through the Canadian Music Centre. I can
think of several more offhand that I havn't counted that I own and perform.
I consider this repertoire tremendously significant. I could wax
eloquently on certain pieces and composers and welcome enquiries. Those
that are curious and would like to go straight to the source can request a
listing of clarinet repertoire directly from CMC. They have a site at
www.culturenet.ca/cmc-library ,I believe [I am very new to computers].You
can get at it through Yahoo also - that's how I found it.
I like the enthusiasm of the above infomercial. I'm sorry I missed
the broadcast.Tape the broadcast? Open the copyright book on that one.
