Summary: "Harry Sparnaay, the bass clarinettist who has been often featured as prominent soloist, launches the most extended and rigorous study on bass clarinet. It deals with thorough technical aspects and emphasizes the resources of present music such as multiphonics, microtones and diverse effects. Everything is illustrated with fingering charts and there are more than 100 audio examples."--P. [4] of cover
