Tchaikovsky Pathetique symphony bass clarinet
Hello, my name is Daniel and I am a graduate student and teaching
assistant in musicology and philosophy at the University of Idaho. One of
my assignments for my Orchestral Literature class is to write a
descriptive analysis of Tchaikovsky's Symphony no. 6. I want to include a
brief remark regarding the common practice of utlizing a bass clarinet for
the softest solo bassoon passage immediately before the development
section in the first movement. I notice that that topic was briefly
addressed on the Tchaikovsky Research Forum. I was wondering if anyone was
aware of any books in which this practice was mentioned? I know from my
own experience that this is often done, as well as from various online
sources like Wikipedia, but, if at all possible, I'd like to be able to
cite from a printed source.
If anyone has any recommendations, please let me know.
