Senior Recital Ideas (Bb Clarinet)
Well, this being my last year in my High School ensemble, I want to perform a senior recital to be able to get an honor cord in performance arts. For those of you who don't know, the senior recital is the culmination of a student's training over the years and finishes it off with a large performance, showcasing his or her work and effort. I need to find a few pieces (possibly duets with a second clarinet, or accompaniment with another instrument) that I should possibly play.
Stuff I'm looking for in the pieces:
- Quick runs; preferably none filled with high-octave notes
- A nice, low ballad; I love the lower octave, and a warm, smooth ballad is just amazing
- A nice, uplifting tempo, preferably with the middle octave
I'm aware that the internet might not be the best place to find stuff like this for something a bit more, personal (my band director would be better, but he's quite busy with financial stuff concerning next year's season, and I don't want to impede on them. I'll get his advice after I pick out a few.) I'm not expecting any of these to turn out to be my recital piece (unless I just fall in love with it), but would like to see it lead me in the right direction.
