New Music for Bass Clarinet

Saturday, February 04, 2012

Usually relegated to the grounding end of things instead of a solo instrument, the bass clarinet has a distinct woody sound, but is actually quite versatile. For this New Sounds, we'll hear everything from electroacoustic work to chamber music, from North African to Alaskan music. Hear pieces by Anouar Brahem, Michel Portal, John Surman, Marty Ehrlich’s Dark Woods Ensemble, and John Luther Adams.

We'll explore the deep tones of bands like Gato Loco whose lead instruments are the bass clarinet and the tuba on this New Sounds program.  There's even more from the tuba with music by Tom Heasley and some bass clarinet work by Marty Erlich.  We'll also hear the jazzy extensions of the bass saxophone in the works of the Maikotron Unit.
