The music on this page would make a great addition to any recital.
Every day, somewhere in the world, there is a clarinet recital. At that recital someone is probably playing some of the same old pieces that everybody plays. Same.... old..... stuff.......
The Clarinet Institute actively encourages new composers to write for the clarinet. There is some great music being written today... music that can easily match the classic standards. Take a moment to listen to the midi files listed below. If you like what you hear,
please contact the composer to pass along what you think. You can also get more information about obtaining the music.
