CLARINET ALTISSIMO FINGER CHART PDF

The American clarinetist Henry Gulick writes of classifications for altissimo register pitches. One classification that is widely employed by professional clarinetists is what Gulick calls "long fingerings. As a result, long fingerings require overblowing of lower pitches. The longer tube length that is in play produces thicker, darker timbres that are generally more secure at loud dynamic levels Example 7. Altissimo fingerings in a second classification produce pitches from overblown throat tones, without the left thumb covering the back tone hole Example 8. Since such a short tube length is employed, these pitches tend to be thin and bright.

Clarinet Fingering Chart

The clarinet is blessed with the largest range of the entire woodwind family. Our responsibility? The clarinet follows a logical fingering and keywork system. Things quickly turn from straightforward to clunky and confusing once clarinetists venture above the upper break above high C into altissimo-land. Then all bets are off. These are the points I use with my students. Achieving good high notes on the clarinet is a combination of proper fingerings, a secure embouchure, lots of air, and a little luck.
