Gabriel: Concerto Op.77
The Concerto Op.77 (2003) for bass clarinet and small orchestra is one of many recent works resulting from the collaboration of American bass clarinetist Michael Davenport and Austrian composer Wolfgang Gabriel. The three-movement concerto offers the bass clarinetist profound challenges of range, technique and expression throughout, with two fast movements surrounding a hauntingly beautiful slow movement with extended cadenza passages.

Green: Bass Clarinet Concerto
Geraldine Green's lovely Bass Clarinet Concerto (1992) has three movements and a total duration of approximately 23 minutes. The first and third movements are generally jovial and mischievous in character, while the second is more austere, demonstrating the bass clarinet's darker side. The work is centered around the key of B flat major so that the use of the bass clarinet's bottom C could be indulged in to the fullest.
