On the Timbre of Clarinet



The clarinet is a woodwind instrument with a widest musical rang and has a unique sound feature. Its timbre can regulate the interpretation of music works. Band, chamber music, solo works and some other music works with different forms can be played by the clarinet flexibly. The timbre is not immutable and frozen. When the music needs a new form of performance, the new performing skills will appear, and affect the continuous development of the performance timbre. Clarinet since its birth has changed greatly in the structure. The range and timbre have also evolved. Clarinet gradually becomes a very expressive dramatic instrument with great tension, beautiful tone, convenient fingering and various modes.
