 Duet books after Voxman 2
Author: GBK 
Date:   2007-12-05 13:12

Many of us who teach clarinet use the standard two volume set of Voxman (Rubank) duets, but the question always arises as to what would be a suitable follow up compilation book after completing the Voxman 2 Selected Duets.

As I have written before, any (or all) of the following of the following would certainly be good choices:

1. Cavallini/Lazarus - Three Grand Artistic Duets

2. J.S. Bach Clarinet Duos (adapted by Gustave Langenus)

3. Voxman - From the Baroque Duets for Clarinet (Rubank)

However, aside from the three (fairly standard) duet books listed above, I would also make the following suggestion...

(drum roll) .......

Voxman 2 Selected Duets for TRUMPET/CORNET.

The duets are quite challenging, for the most part stay within the clarion register of the clarinet and introduce many different styles of writing by composers not normally familiar to clarinetists.

My students enjoy both working on these as well as sightreading them to keep their reading skills sharp.

Just as using the Arban Trumpet Method can be very beneficial for clarinetists, do not overlook some of the trumpet/cornet duet books that are available.

Lots to discover ...GBK
