Born in southern France Auguste Périer (1883-1947) studied at the Ecole Nationale de Musique in Montpellier before entering the Paris Conservatoire. Whilst studying he won the 1904 first prize for Clarinet proving his significant ability on the instrument. Therefore his Complete Study of the Clarinet is very well-informed. The eighth volume of the series 20 Virtuosic Studies is suitable for clarinetists of grades seven and eight standard. It addresses features including articulation dynamics scales arpeggios accidentals ornamentation performance directions tempo markings phrasing key and timesignatures and complex rhythms among other aspects. Périer's Complete Study of the Clarinet (20 Virtuosic Studies) is essential to advanced clarinetists seeking to improve their technique to a high standard.
