The design, evolution and range of the clarinet make it a fascinating instrument to play and score with. Here, Thomas Goss shows you exactly why that is the case.

Orchestrating music requires a good understanding of a range of different instruments, often across multiple genres like string, brass and woodwind. One of the instruments that plays a big part in many orchestrations is the clarinet and in this video from the course Orchestration 104: Clarinets, Saxophones and Bassoons, Thomas Goss reveals what it is about the clarinet's character and range that make it so appealing.

Thomas explains how the design of the clarinet, its reed and body, inform its sound. He also shows you why the range of the clarinet makes it as versatile and expressive as the flute - and particularly good for composers to work with. You'll get practical examples and excerpts that demonstrate why the clarinet is such a versatile instrument. Be sure to check out the full course for more on the clarinet and also on saxophones and bassoons, each with their own specific characters. It's perfect for players, producers and composers of all levels.
