Clarinet I

Jacques Jules

BOUFFIL
(1783 - 1868)

Six Clarinet Trios


Opus 7, Nos. 1-3
Opus 8, Nos. 1-3

Jacques Jules BOUFIL (or BOUFFIL) (1783-1868) was a Parisian clarinetist and composer whose career
spanned the reign of Napoleon, the restoration of the Bourbon dynasty, the Revolution of 1830 and the
formation of the Second Republic. He studied under Lefvre at the Conservatoire de Musique where he won
first prize in 1806 and was awarded a pair of French-made Bb and C clarinets, an award which remained in
place until 1817. From 1807 to 1830 he was solo clarinetist of the Opera-Comique de Paris and for a number
of years performed with a celebrated wind quintet the members of which included Louis Franois Dauprat
(Horn), Joseph Guillou (flute), Antoine Henry (bassoon) and August Georges Gustave Vogt (oboe).
Bouffils compositions were almost exclusively for the clarinet. His six trios, within Opuses 7 and 8, represent
a major contribution to the clarinet literature of any time trios for all seasons, if you will and although clearly
intended for professionals in a concert setting their melodies and musical conversations are a delight and
challenge to all amateurs. For those players who have mastered the art of circular breathing, these trios will
offer a particular pleasure, because there is no convenient place in the fast movements for mere mortals to
breathe, notwithstanding an occasional , to suggest least inconvenient points where one might inhale quickly
without ruining a phrase.
Until the emergence of library catalogs of the world at ones fingertips on the internet, I was unaware of any
of the trios past Opus 7, No. 1, which I played routinely in my teachers clarinet trio. At this writing, the six
scores are freely available for downloading (in Finale 3.7 format) at the web site
http://www.csudh.edu/oliver/clarmusi/clarmusi.htm
I have dedicated this edition to my late teacher Ralph Sarber who throughout his career wanted nothing more
than for young people to learn to play the clarinet, to bask in its literature and to love its versatility.
Happy playing all!
