Bettina Ostermeiier: Klezmer For Clarinet And Piano

Books | Piano, Clarinet

Catalogue No: BA10616
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts

All the important stylistic features of Klezmer music.

Authentic notation.

Easy to medium level of difficulty.

Because the Clarinet is such an important instrument in Klezmer music, these arrangements unveil the full spectrum of the Ashkenazi-Jewish music-making in one fell swoop.

The eight pieces exemplify a multitude of dancing and singing styles, with small ornaments and playing techniques (e.g. bent notes, melismas and chromatic runs) to impart the distinctive flavour of this music. The volume offers the possibility to interpret the pieces in a variety of ways, also offering scope for personal expression. The straightforward Piano part provides bold bass lines, typical harmonic progressions, countermelodies, and a considerable number of embellishments.
