Clarinet Works by Female Composers

In honour of Women's Month 2021, I've compiled a list of works by female composers featuring the clarinet. Several weeks ago, I was asked to find another piece to pair with the Mozart clarinet quintet for an upcoming performance, and thought it would be a great opportunity to share a piece by a female composer. Despite my best intentions, it was challenging to find a clarinet quintet by a woman, and I found it disappointing that there were no online reference lists available. This is by no means a complete or exhaustive list, but I started putting together this resource for my own personal use, and hope that others may find it helpful. If you feel like something is missing and you'd like me to add anything to this list, feel free to drop me a line! Hopefully we can learn more about these women, their pieces, and perform these works more frequently moving forward.
