|Title||Camille Saint-Saëns: Allegro Appassionato|
|Instrumentation||Bass Clarinet & Piano|
|Range||Extended-range instrument required.|
The Allegro Appassionato of Camille Saint-Saëns was composed in 1873, and has since become a staple of the 'cello repertoire, a frequent choice of young 'cellists for contest, audition, and recital. The piece is equally effective in transcription for bass clarinet and piano, and should prove an important addition to the bass clarinet repertoire.
This accessible one-movement work provides moderate technical challenges for the developing bass clarinetist, making an excellent choice for contest or audition purposes.
