Edmund Welles Bass Clarinet Quartet

New works by Cornelius BootsIt’s the world’s only composing ensemble of four bass clarinetists. It’s named after a nonexistent author. Its musical influences include boogie-woogie, 19th century salon music, pop, grunge, hard gospel, blues, rock, metal, Renaissance motets and jazz. It’s Edmund Welles: the bass clarinet quartet, purveyors of “heavy chamber music, muzak for conspiracy theorists, songs of lunacy and purpose; original compositions featuring rhythmic convolutions, incessant bass lines and hooky melodies.”
