 RE: BALKAN CLARINET MUSIC

I'm afraid I'm in the same boat as you regarding finding overseas Balkan clarinet help. However, I've played various Balkan and international music for the past 7 years in Minnesota. I started with a band, and now perform with the folk orchestra for the local professional ethnic dance troupe. Keep listening to the recordings. There are a lot of nuances, particularly regarding intonation, that you will continue to discover.

As mentioned above, the eefc (East European Folklife Center) is fantastic. I went to one of their workshops last year and highly recommend it for learning pretty much any Balkan music (although their focus can be different from year to year).

The other question I have is: where are you? There may be an immigrant in your area who can teach you tunes and styles. The hotbeds that come to mind are New York City and Chicago, but there may be someone else somewhere else too.
