Duets for violin and clarinet

I currently have four volumes of music arranged for violin and clarinet duet. They're available on

Duets for Violin and Clarinet, Volume One and Duets for Violin and Clarinet, Volume Two are two volumes of classical pieces arranged for violin and clarinet. Composers whose music is featured in these two volumes include Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Mozart, Grieg, Schubert, Satie, Elgar, and others. You can see the complete list of pieces in each volume by going to the second preview page on each volume's page (click on "Look inside," and it's the page after the cover.)

I also have two volumes of Christmas music duets for violin and clarinet. Volume One and Volume Two are available on Sheetmusicplus. The songs "White Christmas" and "Silver Bells" have also been arranged for violin and clarinet.

Bartok's Romanian Folk Dances and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" are also available in my arrangements for clarinet and violin.

I plan to arrange more music for this combination of instruments in the future.

Recent Montreal music events

A lot has been going on this past little while.

Once again, I played clarinet in the orchestra for a McGill Savoy Society production. This year, we did H.M.S. Pinafore. Pinafore was also the very first production that I played in, 10 years ago. Once again, it was such a pleasure to be in the Savoy Society!

On March 7, the Sam Roberts Band played the last show of their Lo-Fantasy tour. The show was here in Montreal. And what a show it was! Stunning visual displays, a wonderful mix of older and newer songs, and a very enthusiastic audience combined to create a most memorable concert. This was my fourth time seeing the Sam Roberts Band, and it was my favourite show of theirs that I've seen.

I love living in Montreal, where there are so many great things happening.
