9780195343281: From the Clarinet D'Amour to the Contra Bass: A History of Large Size Clarinets, 1740-1860

Following his much-acclaimed The Baroque Clarinet and The Clarinet in the Classical Period, Albert R. Rice now turns his signature detailed attention to large clarinets - the clarinet d'amour, the basset horn, the alto clarinet, bass and contra bass clarinets.

Each chapter is devoted to a specific instrument, and offers a fascinating insider's look at its defining characteristics, a comprehensive history of its evolution, meticulously-researched information on its makers and aspects of construction, and a thorough discussion of its music. Rice illustrates how the introduction of large clarinets into chamber ensembles, wind bands, and opera orchestras was the result of experiments meant to address specific musical needs. Along the way, he brings to life the musicians, virtuosi, soloists, and orchestral and band musicians, as well as the instruments' makers and the composers from J. C. Bach to Smetana who wrote for them.

Based on careful study of primary sources - musical compositions, patents, memoirs and diaries, and unfettered access to historical instruments themselves--Rice's expert presentation is nothing short of exhaustive. From the Clarinet d'Amour to the Contrabass will engage all who love the clarinet and its music.

About the Author:


An accomplished clarinetist, Albert R. Rice is also former curator of the Fiske Museum of Musical Instruments, Claremont, California, a professional librarian, and author of The Baroque Clarinet (OUP, 1992) and The Clarinet in the Classical Period (OUP, 2003).

Review:


"In his latest volume on the history of the clarinet, Albert Rice has once again given us a definitive reference work. His knowledge of the instrument's organological development and repertoire is encyclopedic. This book on the large-size clarinets is, as usual, impeccably researched, providing thorough coverage of this important but neglected topic. In addition to astonishing amounts of detail on makers, designs, and music, the checklists of extant instruments are invaluable. Scholars and clarinetists alike owe Dr. Rice a debt of gratitude for this superb book."--Jane Ellsworth, Assistant Professor of Music, Eastern Washington University


"As in his previous two books, The Baroque Clarinet and The Clarinet in the Classical Period, Dr. Rice provides an astounding amount of material in From the Clarinet d'Amour to the Contrabass. Here, in one source, is encyclopedic information about low clarinets. The attention to detail is amazing. Everything is well documented, too. Not only will this new book take its place with the other two in being an essential compendium of information, the documentation will serve to inspire additional research and investigation. This is another 'must have' volume for any serious study of early clarinet."--Deborah Check Reeves, Curator of Education and Associate Professor of Music, National Music Museum, The University of South Dakota


"Albert Rice's new book is a veritable storehouse of information on the history, makers, and music for these often overlooked instruments. Much of the included materials has been previously inaccessible, and the author has done a thorough job in searching out and uncovering sources and then presenting this in a logical and organized fashion. This book will be an essential addition to the libraries of clarinet enthusiasts worldwide."--David Ross, Professor, University of Texas at El Paso, and noted clarinet historian


"This is a major contribution to the history of the clarinet, having examined in detail many areas which have been lost from view for years and certainly have never been assembled before." -Clarinet & Saxophone


"This excellent account is succinct and exhaustive...One welcomes this latest superb addition to the literature on the clarinet, while wondering what Rice's next contribution might be." --Early Music
