Duet for basset horns No 4 in B flat major
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The two ‘concertante duetts’ are taken from A New and Compleat Preceptor for the Clarinet. They are printed in such a way that they can be played on two clarinets, or, using alternative low notes, on ‘two Corno Bassettas’. They are probably the earliest English pieces for the basset horn.
