The "40 Studies" compiled by Cyrille Rose are still today one of the most used by clarinetists. Adapting major violin studies of the 18th and 19th century, Rose made an excellent choice of technical and expressive materials. He freely changed the tone, articulations and note ranges to adapt as much as possible to mechanical and physiological specificities of the clarinet. Nevertheless, each study is a challenge that must be overcome by a slow and patient work which, if properly structured, develops and strengthens greatly the capacity of the clarinetist. In this new edition, the references of original studies are provided, supplemented by a brief biography of their authors.
