Want to Play Bruch's Double Concerto for Clarinet, Viola and Orchestra?

Any time you like!

Do you know Max Bruch's double concerto for clarinet, viola and orchestra (also called Doppelkonzert)? It is a great addition to the repertoire of viola players, clarinet players and even violin players, since the violin can play the clarinet part.

It's a romantic concerto, so if you like romantic music and Bruch's violin concerto, you'll love this one too. Why is this concerto rarely heard about? You'll read about this here.

If you've been lucky enough to have heard Bruch's Double Concerto (there are some very good recordings around), and maybe thought you wanted to play it, I'm sure you had very hard times trying to find and buy the score and the orchestral parts.

Bruch Double Concerto not for sale?

Score and orchestral parts for Bruch Double Concerto cannot be found in music shops, although they do exist and they are even in the public domain which means anyone theoretically can take them and play the concerto.

However, it's impossible to buy them simply because they are not for sale! So far they have been available only for rental and... at what prices! I myself played it with a semi-professional/semi-amateur orchestra and they had to pay more than £261 (British pounds, so any other currency would be more) FOR ONE PERFORMANCE of it. A professional orchestra would have to pay even more.

(This is the same problem with a lot of other modern music, by the way).

This makes it difficult for a lot of smaller professional orchestras with a small budget, for amateur orchestras, even school orchestras to perform this lovely composition.

Forget expensive rentals, own it forever for a fraction of that price!

Now you can play Bruch Double Concerto for Clarinet, Viola and Orchestra any time you like and enjoy this charming composition.

Now Bruch's Double Concerto for Viola, Clarinet and Orchestra is going to be available for you to play it, it's not an extremely demanding composition and you, viola, clarinet (as well as violin) player, professional player, student or amateur, will be able to perform it as many times as you like without spending a lot of money.

A brand new edition is being prepared, transcribed directly from Bruch's own manuscript of the Double Concerto, and it's necessary to know how many are actually interested in buying it.
