|Title||Hans Tobel: Trio Bassoso Op.13 (2008)|
|Instrumentation||Bass Clarinet Trio|
|Range||Extended range instruments required (all parts)|
Dutch composer Hans Tobel (1966-) wrote Trio Bassoso in 2008 for his wife, a bass clarinetist, to perform with two of her young students. The work is an excellent addition to the available repertoire of easily-accessible ensemble pieces; it could be used as an effective challenge for the young student, or a smooth addition to a program for more experienced high school or college players.
The brief work consists of three movements, all with dance-like rhythms: Scherzando in 5/8; Andante serioso in 6/8; Vivo in 9/8. While all players are required to have an extended-range instrument, the demands on range are otherwise quite limited.
