Every time Novacane begins to search for new music to play, I have to resist the urge to whine about the lack of quality music out there for our group. I think this is something we pick up in school - people always whine about clarinet trios, quartets, choir, etc. because there is “no good music out there”. Quartets in school tend to play the same pieces - Uhl, Summertime, Clarinet Polka, Licorice Sticks, you know the ones. This certainly doesn’t help the quartet image...Ever striving to play new things and spread the word about clarinet quartet, Novacane finds music from all kinds of places. I hope that by sharing these, this post can help quartets find music to play for all sorts of occasions.
