Klezmer clarinet

I found this video awhile ago, the artist is amazing, what he can do with a clarinet.

Klezmer is very expressive, and somehow, all the sounds come out: laughing, crying, sighing, smiling, and sobbing. How was a mystery to me. Then I found this video, which is a how-to. Apparently, with the right mouthpiece, you can get the big bends required. I wonder how much you could bend on a bassoon.

  1. This is amazing. I hope you and J can learn how to do it. I can see a clarinet-bassoon laughing duet already!
