Clarinetopia 2016 Master Class Repertoire

Below is the master class repertoire for 2015.

Repertoire for 2016 will be finalized when information becomes available

For the master classes, we encourage performers to select repertoire for clarinet unaccompanied or from the following list. Other repertoire is possible but will have to be approved by the faculty and pianists. You are encouraged to submit orchestral excerpts among your repertoire. Each performer will have 30 minutes of master class time. You may choose to do orchestral excerpts rather than solo repertoire if you wish.   Your selection ideally should be about 7 minutes of music, e.g. one movement of a big sonata or concerto; two movements of a small sonata; a one-movement work such as Messager, Weber Concertino, or Debussy Premiere Rhapsody; or a short solo piece such as the Stravinsky 3 Pieces or the Sutermeister Capriccio.  10 minutes should be the absolute maximum, otherwise there won’t be enough teaching time.

In order to avoid duplications, please email to a pecking order of 3 pieces.  Most likely you’ll be able to do your first choice, but we do not want two performers to play the same repertoire.
