Recital E-flat ClarinetPrivilege B-flat Bass Clarinet to low C
"The Selmer Privilège bass clarinet and E-flat clarinet have widened the sonic possibilities at my disposal. They offer satisfyingly consistent palettes of tone colour across their full ranges and an unrivalled integrity of sound, notably in the chalumeau and altissimo registers. On the bass clarinet, the key-arrangement for the lowest notes has made life easier: two low E-flat and two low D keys make previously difficult legato passages more manageable. Intonation and legato on the E-flat clarinet is superb and on the bass clarinet the intonation across the break has been improved with intelligently shaped tone holes in the region E/B-Ab/Eb. Pad resonators on the bass clarinet ensure that the legato across the break is more consistent. These are professional instruments of the highest quality."
