The Total Clarinet

Ed Joffe with Five Woodwinds

Part of the Ed Joffe Woodwind Doubling Masterclass Series, The Total Clarinet masterclass will use selected classical and jazz etudes from Rose, Cavellini, and Artie Shaw as a means for discussing various challenges that all doubling clarinetists must attend to on a daily basis. These include legato finger technique; resonant articulations; flexibility and uniformity of tone; stylistic integrity; and equipment needs for classical, commercial and jazz performance. The influences of Daniel Bonade, Benny Goodman and Buddy DeFranco will be examined.
