|Title||J.B. Boismortier: 6 Sonatas|
|Instrumentation||Bass Clarinet Duet|
|Range||Extended-range instruments NOT required.|
The 6 Sonatas by J.B. Boismortier (1691-1755) for two 'celli work wonderfully in transcription for bass clarinet duet. Each Sonata consists of four short movements. Boismortier was a French composer of the Baroque era, known for his prolific output of accessible solo and chamber music for various instruments. The composer makes use of imitation throughout, and therefore the two parts are virtually equal in range and difficulty. The Sonatas would make an excellent project for a high school duo, an easy addition to a college recital, or just enjoyable playing for any bass clarinet duo.
