|Title||Reinagle: Seven Easy Duets|
|Instrumentation||Bass Clarinet Duet|
|Range||Extended-range instruments NOT required.|
Joseph Reinagle (1762-1836) was the son of a German musician, but was born in England, where he would spend his life and make his career. Among other musical activities, he was a successful cellist, and many of his works feature that instrument.
This collection of duets, originally for cello duo, were designed by the composer to be musically appealing, yet accessible for beginners. The two parts are of equal difficulty, and do not present any extremes of range or significant technical difficulty. Each duet includes two short movements of contrasting style. The duos would make excellent sight-reading material for student and teacher in a lesson setting, or an excellent choice for a first duet for young bass clarinetists to perform.
