|Title||Robert Schumann: Adagio & Allegro Op.70|
|Instrumentation||Bass Clarinet & Piano|
|Range||Extended-range instrument NOT required|
This transcription of Schumann's Adagio & Allegro (1849) is a favorite of Duo Alea, and is always well received by audiences when included in a recital program. Schumann (1810-1856) composed the work for either horn or cello with piano accompaniment, and the transcription for bass clarinet is remarkably effective.
The beautiful and simple Adagio and dramatic Allegro both feature a wonderfully rich piano accompaniment typical of Schumann, providing wonderful support for the solo line. This transcription maintains the key and range of the original, and does NOT require an extended range instrument.
