The Carl Fischer Progressive Duets for Clarinet is a comprehensive publicationof fifty-two graded duets that have been arranged or composedby Larry Clark. Larry has drawn on his extensive experience as a schoolmusic teacher and a prominent composer/arranger to create a collectionof duets that will be useful in a variety of performance situations. Playingduets is an excellent way for the student to build ensemble skills with acolleague or teacher. This collection is a welcome addition to repertoirethat will provide players with refreshing new duets. It is a collection thatis long overdue.
In my experience as an instrumental-music teacher, I have found thathaving students play in small chamber-music groups is a very beneficialexercise to improve their overall musicianship. The simplest form ofchamber music is the duet. It is an opportunity for the student toplay with a teacher or to play with another student of similar abilities.Aspects of playing such as tone quality, intonation, technique andensemble skills can be developed during the process of studyingduets.Over the years I have become frustrated by the limited amount ofavailable duet collections. It seemed that everywhere I went everyonewas using the same one or two collections. Thus, I endeavored to createa new collection of duets for this important teaching and performingpurpose. This collection brings together some new arrangements fromthe classical repertoire along with established duets and some newcompositions that will provide hours of musical enjoyment. The duetsare placed in the book in order of difficulty and cover a range of keysthat are appropriate for this ability level. Special care has been given tomaking sure that both of the duet parts are on a similar level of abilityand that each part is given an opportunity to play a lead role at somepoint during the arrangement. Also, all musical markings are attachedto both parts and the size of the music is large for conveniences ofreading.It is my hope that this collection will help to stimulate and enhancethe musicianship of the performers. It was a pleasure for me to havethe opportunity to put together this collection. I hope it is a usefultool for you for years to come.—Larry Clark, 2006.

    These books, available for most instruments, are excellent. Playing with someone else and making nice music is fun, satisfying and builds confidence in everyone's playing. They are progressive so I assign one or two per week to round out lesson material and solos. Great for sight reading practice the...

    first time and students can invite others to play with them. Highly recommend for all instruments.
