The fantasy pieces by schumann are nice as a solo but HORRIBLE with an accompanment..

Fantasy pieces by Gade are not to bad...

Good Luck

Hey, I've just joined this site.

My focus at the moment is the 1st movement from Mozart's Clarinet Concerto. Iím playing with piano accompaniment at the first school concert of the year, funnily enough it will be my first solo on stage! Iím also looking at the 2nd and 3rd movements and maybe Weberís concertos, if they are any good?

Mozart first movement.. Its fun to play! Good luck

I enjoy Webers 1st movement of his first concerto and the 3rd movements of both his concertos..

You could even play the Grand Duo Concertante or Variations..

Feel free to ask

<Added>

For Mozarts First Movement becareful with speed.. Articulation and Dynamics is Essential.. Finger co-ordination and stamina is needed..

I've decided not to post the titles that I'm playing with my school's band yet so here are the ones I will be/have been working on by myself possibly for fun.

- Adagio - Tarantella (Ernesto Cavallini
- Introduction, Theme and Variations (C.M von Weber
- Three Pieces (Igor Stravomslu)

I just got about 15-20 solo clarinet books from my teacher yesterday, and many of the pieces mentioned are there!! Two other interesting ones are:

Poulenc's Sonata
and
Hymnos (ΥΜΝΟΣ ΕΣΠΕΡΙΝΟΣby Peter Maxwell Davies

This is a pretty weird song, as far as it looks, seeing as the first bar is 2 pages long and there is no time signature. It's not free-form all the way through though. If anyone knows ANYTHING about this piece, it would help, but I will get my teacher to help me with it on Tuesday.

I also have to play a 20thC piece for classroom music in about 6-7 weeks time and I'm thinking about the:

Arnold Sonata

Also, I'm "looking" at these pieces, not necessarily playing them very well!

Well, my 8th grade band's playing Bacchanale by Camille Saint Saens. It's pretty fun. I'm playing Scene and Air as a solo later. And my clarinet teacher wants me to get started on Concertino.
