If my clarinet concerto (in the final stages of completion) requires the soloist to play Clarinet and Bass Clarinet in turn, would calling it "Concerto for Clarinets" - (plural), be misleading or in any way inappropriate?
I'd be glad to have views on this.

My website all my finished concertos streamed at www.musicvenue21.com.
When I have finished the clarinet work, I will add it to my music.

my first thought is singular since it is one person - concerto for clarinet player

How about "Concerto for Clarinettist and Orchestra"? That establishes that it is for a single player: in performance this is confirmed when the player comes on with two instruments.

That makes sense to me. Have you scheduled a premier?

I would call it " Bb and bass clarinet concert".

I can see the reasoning behind the Bb and Bass Clarinet title, but it doesn't make it clear that it is for one player with two instruments, which is the composer's current problem with devising a title for it.

Thanks chaps !

It was going to be called - Concerto for Clarinet and Children - so this might mean a change then to Concerto for Clarinetist and Children.

Which I'll use then unless I hear any better offers !!

Oh........

And in response to Guido Arbonelli and the question of a premiere.....

As you will see from the comments on the website from well-known musicians about each of the other concertos (i) that are streamed from my website there is a deal of interest in their performance.

When the clarinet concerto is ready, perhaps you would like to consider the solo part?

www.musicvenue21.com is undergoing an upgrade at the moment so if you wan to hear any of the other works during the next two weeks you will have to use the flash site www.perreur-lloyd.com

A delightful question!


My answer; the chances of my winning at Roulette are app. 3%: my chances of getting a performance (to any of my works), are .0003%
