A goldmine for clarinet sheet music

The website of Adriano Amore is a goldmine of clarinet sheet music. The site is in Italian and dedicated to the italian clarinet tradition of which Adriano is a recognized expert. However for those of you who cannot read italian, do not despair, on Adriano's website there is lots of sheet music to download and recordings to listen to.

The free section of his website provides free downloadable scores as a clarinet duet of Rossini, a sonata of Gherardeschi for clarinet trio, two scores for clarinet quartets of Giampieri and Monti, and a magnificient transcription of the ouverture of "La Traviata" of Verdi for clarinet ensemble. On this same page you will also find many more music scores for clarinet playing with other instruments.

One page is dedicated to pedagogical material ("didattica" in italian) with for instance lots of downloadable sheet music with orchestral passages.

One page is dedicated MIDI files ready to download and then under "Ascoltami" ("Listen to me") you can hear Adriano playing from his CD. Under spartiti (music scores) you can see some sample of few of the many historical scores that Adriano collected and that can be order in 2 DVDs for those of you interested and curious about the Italian clarinet tradition.
