All about Clarinets / Undercover by James Rae
« on: September 27, 2020, 12:42:33 PM »
A piece called Undercover from a book by James Rae. Someone posted the score for me on Facebook. I learned 2 new notes, F# and Eb. Previously I was playing F sharp by using the ring only on the F key at the back. But this way is simpler, just the first fingerhole, no thumb. I ordered the book, should be with me soon.

First draft of it as it were so its a bit rough.

If you can remember it maybe we could get 7 forum members to play their part and upload them all. There is a way of putting them all together...

Looks a nice horn. I love the metal ones

A player I know, Adrian Cox, just got a wide bore Luis Rossi clari complete with Vandoren wide bore mouthpiece. I just assumed a wider bore = more volume, as it does with recorders.

A 90 year old clari in that good condition though. Amazing

Never on a Sunday, a song I've come to love after first playing it on recorder. The dynamics of clarinet lend it that extra oomph.
Here's some facts about the song from Wikipedia
"Never on Sunday", also known by its original Greek title "Ta Pediá tou Pireá" ("The Children of Piraeus"), is a popular song written by Manos Hatzidakis and first sung by Melina Mercouri in the 1960 film of the same name.

A little piece called Dance Hither, in my alto recorder method book, first on alto recorder, and then on clarinet, which I haven't played in months!
I had to play the recorder part first, because if I go from clarinet (high pressure) to recorder (very low pressure) I find myself badly overblowing.

Very interesting post Windy! I had no idea you had a weak jaw, a wide bore would certainly help there. It would help me too. If I play clarinet, then switch over to recorder, as I like to do, I find I automatically over blow and it sounds awful till I readjust my air stream.
Interesting that you can use a Bb mp on a C horn. I would quite like a C clarinet. Would make it a lot easier when playing from sheet!
