The Singing Clarinet is a collection of compositions for clarinet pupils on the elementary level. Its four volumes correspond to four years of teaching. Naturally, it is possible to use some pieces in the preceding or following year, in accordance with the student’s ability.
From his nineteen years experience in clarinet pedagogy the author strongly recommends that the pupils should appear on stage as soon and as often as possible. The scarcity of literature for this age was the stimulus for compiling this collection.
The clarinet solo part of these pieces was composed by Radivoj Lazić, and the piano accompaniment is by Vlastimir Peričić. In cases where solo part and accompaniment are by the same author, this is clearly indicated.
The author wishes to provide a complete source of material for elementary clarinet teaching by his School for clarinet I-IV I Am Studying Clarinet, Scale Studies, his collections The Singing Clarinet I-IV, Merry Days in the Music School, Melodious Studies with piano I-II and Easy Clarinet Duos I-II, and a collection of transcriptions Great Masters for Clarinet I-VI.
The continuation of this material, for pupils studying at the medium level, are the collections The Young Clarinet Virtuoso I-IV.
Song and Dance
Composition Song and Dance, written by a composer Vlastimir Peričić is very well known in our area. The original version was created for violin and piano, and then rearranged for cello and piano, and finally for clarinet and piano.
In 1994 Song and Dance was arranged by composer Vlastimir Peričić for clarinet and string orchestra especially for a young clarinetist Z. L.
Young clarinetist Ž. L, a student from the class of Professor , firstly performed this composition at the Great Hall of the Ilija Kolarac Fundation on December 4, 1994, accompanied by the High School String Orchestra. The conductor was Jelena Jovanović – a professor.
After the performance, professor and composer Vlastimir Peričić personally congratulated the performers, as it can be seen at the end of the recording.
