Product Description

•••••
There is a myth that the swan, tuneless for its entire life, will, just before dying, suddenly find its voice and sing. The basset clarinet was presumed to have sang its swan song sometime in the late eighteenth century, having been replaced by more modern instruments. This too, however, is a myth, as the instrument has its champions even to this day, including Peter Wright, for whom this work was written. An alternate version has been adapted for the modern clarinet in A, while retaining the spirit of the original work. Parts for both basset clarinet and for clarinet in A are included in this set. An additional version for basset horn is sold separately.
