We're a group of NC clarinet players with a common interest in playing clarinet quartets. Personnel vary from time to time, and many clarinetists from central NC play with us. CarolinaClarinet was founded in 2003 by Brent Smith and Jim Williams. Our library listing currently has 383 quartets, with MP3 sound clips, times and comments for most of them. The library list can be viewed by Title, by Composer, by Arranger or by Instrumentation. Recordings are available for over 200 of the listed quartets. Many of our own arrangements (listed under Smith or Williams as the arranger) are for sale at very low cost (typically $10 or so) online at ScoreVivo. We're also willing to consider exchanges for equivalent other original quartets or arrangements of public domain pieces (contact us at our EMAIL link below).
Revised October 2015 to include more sound files, and other updates.
The comment “free download” in the library lists refers to quartets available from www.clarinetinstitute.com/ or www.bruceevans.net
