This site is home to Alea Publishing & Recording, an independent firm specializing in music for the bass clarinet. We offer a growing catalog of creative, artistic transcriptions and new music for bass clarinet solo & ensemble.
Recently, we have begun to branch into publishing music for other instruments as well; in the past year, we have released new works for saxophone, solo piano, bassoon quartet, wind sextet, and clarinet choir. If you are a composer or arranger who would like to have your work considered for publication, please read our submission instructions.
The menu at the top of this page will guide you through our site - including our catalog of sheet music and recordings, information about the musicians behind the scenes, and several valuable resources for bass clarinetists. Enjoy your time here, and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions!
Who we are
Duo Alea has been performing music for bass clarinet and piano since 1996. After a few years, it became obvious that there were missing areas in the available repertoire, and the Duo has looked to fill these areas with the publication of new works and transcriptions. As we have published more and more material, we have responded wherever possible to the suggestions of our customers.
In the 15 years following the first publication, the Bach Suites, the Alea catalog now includes music for ensembles, new music, music for study, as well as many fine transcriptions.
Presently, we are working to expand the catalog in all areas, but with a special eye towards new composition and instruments beyond the bass clarinet.
