    Default Transposed Scores for Bass Clarinet

    Hi everybody!

    Here's, from J-S Bach's orchestral suite No 2, the Badinerie, transposed for bass clarinet, copyleft.

    I chose the heights to limit the quick jumps between the registers, after only few hours on my uncle's bass clarinet long ago. Sounding B minor is only octaviated, to play together with existing scores. I can provide other heights.

    The written range fits a soprano clarinet too. More overlapping between the registers helps on the bass.

    Enjoy!

    Joseph Achron's Hebrew Melody is superb on a violin
    and as I made a transposition for the bassoon, I've adapted a few details for the bass clarinet, hi neighbours:


    I suggest to hear violinists, to realize how freely they play the piece, and to save time not over-interpretating the tuplets in the Cadenza. Nice examples among others:

    Your opinion matters! Do you see mistakes in my transposition? Is everything reasonably playable? I suppressed the Ossia for the bassoon as I imagine all passages are easy on the bass clarinet.

    This temporary version is expected to disappear as newer ones replace it. Check later messages then.

    Newer version of Joseph Achron's Hebrew Melody, transposed for a bassoon or bass clarinet and piano.
    The bassoon or bass clarinet score got minor improvements. The piano score is the original one and may still evolve a little bit.

    Hopefully last version of Joseph Achron's Hebrew Melody, transposed for a bassoon or bass clarinet and piano

    An error in measure 76 is corrected. Please discard the older versions.

    The piano voice is Achron's original.

    I added breathe marks and breathe ossia as mere suggestions.
