The six-key clarinet, a set of clarinets of the Parisian maker Jean-Jacques Baumann by Jean Jeltsch.
Book in French, English, German and Japenese.
Old instruments collection is a new series of monographs featuring single instruments or instrument makers.
This book presents the six-key clarinet of the parisien maker Jean-Jacques Baumann. This booklet contains chronological charts, historical and technical details, together with photographs, as well as considering the instrument from an aesthetic point of view.
We have tried to make this collection thoroughly pratical one, deliberately limiting the format, and providing texts in four language ( French, English, German and Japenese ) aiming for maximum clarity. These individual studies should be helpful to musicians, musicologists, historians, instrument makers and enthusiasts.
