New York, NY – Carl Fischer Music announces the release of Lesser Known Works for the Clarinet (WF220 - Score - $16.99), composed by Heinrich Baermann, edited by Madelyn Moore.
Heinrich Baermann was one of the most celebrated virtuosi clarinetists of the early nineteenth century. While he is primarily known for having inspired some of the most revered pieces in the clarinet repertoire, it is not as widely acknowledged that he also often wrote and performed his own pieces. Dr. Madelyn Moore, Instructor of Woodwinds at Kilgore College in Kilgore, Texas, has compiled three largely forgotten works by Baermann in this unique collection. Having pursued research on Baermann’s unpublished works at libraries in Germany and Italy, Moore has presented her findings at conferences around the world, and it is her hope that by studying and performing these works, clarinetists will gain a better understanding of this important instrumental predecessor.
Lesser Known Works for the Clarinet is available now through Carl Fischer Music, or your favorite music retailer.
Born in Potsdam, Germany, Heinrich Baermann (1784–1847) studied with both Joseph Beer (1744–1811) and Franz Tausch (1762–1817) and played in the court orchestra of Munich for about 27 years. He traveled extensively throughout his career and was renowned for his beautiful tone, his musicality, and his charming personality. As both an influential performer and father of Carl Baermann, author of the frequently-used Baermann method, Heinrich Baermann’s legacy continues to influence modern clarinetists to this day.
Dr. Madelyn Moore is Instructor of Woodwinds at Kilgore College in Kilgore, Texas and is an active freelance musician in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. She has twice been asked to adjudicate the International Clarinet Association Research Competition. Dr. Moore is also a founding member of The Violetta Duo, a group conceived with the intent to expand the repertoire written for unaccompanied flute and clarinet. She has performed with the Fort Worth Symphony and has given recitals throughout the United States. Read more about Dr. Moore at her website.
