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 The basset clarinet was presumed to have sang its swan song sometime in the late eighteenth century, having been replaced by more modern instruments.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. The present version of the work, adapted for basset horn, was created to reflect the resurgence that that instrument is also currently enjoying. The version for basset clarinet or for clarinet in A is sold separately.
