Do any of you know any pieces that are written for clarinet bya woman composer. I have a project that I wanted to do for a feminism class and wanted to see what I could play that was written for a woman composer

Thea Musgrave concerto

If there are so many people on this board unwilling or unable to have a civil and balanced discussion about important issues, then I shan't bother to post here any more.

To the great relief of many of you, no doubt.

Trois Petits Contes by Evonne Desportes. She is best known for her clarinet quartets, but this a very nice, not difficult piece for clarinet and piano. It is in the collection, Recital Literature for the Clarinet, compiled by William Stubbins.

Search the web for "Jane Brockman" without the quotes. She has written some pieces for clarinet and electronics. Gerry Erante has recorded some of her work. She sells her pieces direct at very reasonable prices.* Difficult but sound like fun. Worth it for the accompaniment tracks.

Libby Larsen has written several works involving clarinet, including "Dancing Solo"* for clarinet alone. Her works are difficult, however (as are the works of Tower, Musgrave and Brockman).

Listed, among others at http://www.womensmusic.com/playlist201.html

Carolyn Bremer, Clarinet Sonata
Germaine Tailleferre, Arabesque* (also perhaps a sonata* for clarinet solo)
Mary Jeanne van Appledorn, Sonatine
Jeanne E. Shaffer, Three Faces of Woman

In addition to the Shaffer, Richard Stoltzman has recorded:

Margaret Brouwer, Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra
Marilyn Ziffrin, Clarinet Concerto
Mary Ann Griebling, Wild Wood - Quiet Wood
Norma Wendelburg, Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra

Some other works that come to mind:

Deborah Drattell, Clarinet Concerto -- Fire Dances

Johanna Senfter, Sonata for Clarinet and Piano*

Katherine Hoover, Clarinet Concerto*

Violet Archer, Sonata*; Sonatina*

Margaret Sutherland, Sonata

Deon Nielsen Price, several works* (search the web)

Marion Bauer (search the web for info), Sonata for Clarinet (or Viola) and Piano*

Finding the music for these may be difficult in many cases. Most of them have been recorded. I have marked the ones I know have been published (or are available from the composer) with an asterisk. I have only listed works for solo clarinet, concertos or works with piano that came to mind. Try searching the composition database on this site for additional information about these works.

Pieces that I think are not particularly difficult include those by Bauer, Archer, and Senfter.

Best regards,
jnk

Some Australian women composers:

Miriam Hyde

"Tangled Rope" for clarinet solo (Bb)


Elena Kats-Chernin

Interlude 2 for clarinet (Bb)


Christine McCombe

"Threefold" three pieces for three clarinets (E flat Sop, Bb, Bass)


Margaret Sutherland

Sonata for clarinet and piano


Any of these works are available through:

www.amcoz.com.au


(No, I don't work for them).

Without music, the world would be grey, very grey.

Myriam Alter is a composer in the jazz vein who has not been mentioned. The compositions on the following album use clarinet, bandoneon, piano, bass and drums. My choice to play would be the haunting melody of "It's All There", easily memorized.
