About the Bass Clarinet Bibliography

The initial compilation of the bibliography took place in 1998-1999, utilizing the print and online resources listed on the sources page. Since that time, we have continued to add works as we have discovered them and as visitors to the site have submitted suggestions. We have utilized Google Alerts since 2011, allowing us to automatically receive notifications when new works are mentioned online, greatly adding to our ability to expand the bibliography!
