25 Contemporary Etudes for advanced clarinetists, celebrating many of the diverse styles of music in which the clarinet plays an integral role in.
Mr. Sadigursky's etudes are highly inventive and imaginative - a diverse collection of instructive, yet entertaining, group of pieces that clarinetists of all ages will find a most satisfying addition to this literature. Make room, Monsieur Rose. - Todd Palmer, acclaimed recording artist and soloist
Sam Sadigursky's etudes are a significant and welcome addition to the clarinet study repertoire. These marvelous etudes combine traditional technical exercises with a contemporary flare and vocabulary. They are challenging for the serious clarinetist and are a wonderful tool to increase not only virtuosity but musicianship as well! I have started to use them with my students at Michigan State with much success! - Caroline Hartig, acclaimed soloist and recording artist
I love these etudes! They re obsessive, concentrated, and right on point. They grip onto important musical and technical issues without ever letting go. They re challenging, but the real challenge is mastering the musicality in them. If the familiar clarinet etudes are the meal, Sadigursky has just given us the espresso.... - Andrew Sterman, Phillip Glass Ensemble
Sam Sadigursky's characterful etudes are so well crafted and musically creative that they make me want to practice them! My students at the University of Delaware love them, and they target many problem areas in clarinet technique. A great addition to the etude repertoire! - Marianne Gythfeldt, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Zephyros Winds
These etudes are essential for the advancing clarinetist. The greatest bore in an etude is laboring and solving a problem of technique without a satisfying musical result. . . Sam's etudes manage to reveal the wonderful possibilities in reaching new levels of ability. The pieces are harmonically compelling, lyrical, and often witty. Concise but never narrowly conceived... This one's staying on the stand; I can't recommend it highly enough. - Peter Hess, Balkan Beat Box, Slavic Soul Party
Clarinetists will delight in these charming, graceful Ã©tudes, filled with unexpected harmonic twists and turns. - Derek Bermel, clarinetist/composer/conductor
