In Hidden Treasures album, clarinetist Seunghee Lee goes beyond boundaries to venture into broadening the clarinet repertoire by making brave leaps into arranging famous symphonies and operatic arias for clarinet and piano. 



When I was a young girl growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, my parents used to tell me to play something on my clarinet in front of family friends and guests at dinner parties. But I didn’t have any complete clarinet works that I could proudly perform at such occasions. Back in the days without the Internet, I remember quickly running to my school band music folder to see if I could play any sections from the band parts or to church hymn books for suitable melodies, but I always felt they didn’t quite fit the ambiance.

Growing up, I used to hear lots of classical music through Chicago’s WFMT classical radio station. There seemed to be endless amounts of beautiful music performed by world-renowned orchestras and musicians, including opera singers, pianists and violinists, flowing out of my radio day and night, and I remember wishing that someday I too could play some of those beautiful melodies on my clarinet. Sometimes when I heard beautiful melodies from my piano book, I would write them out on separate staff paper, transposed one step higher from the concert C to play on my Bb clarinet. This way, I would be ready to perform with pride and confidence the next time my parents asked me to play my clarinet in front of guests.

I am so excited to finally fulfill on my childhood dream and present to you the Hidden Treasures Sheet Music Book. The collection in this book contains some of my favorite pieces, and with a little bit of arrangement and transposition, I can make them into beautiful clarinet pieces. Thanks to the advanced age of the Internet, I was able to download all kinds of music at the click of a button and be able to share my story of how listening to countless hours of classical music on the radio growing up has inspired me to create and complete this project.

I dedicate the Hidden Treasures Sheet Music Book to all the young girls and boys who are learning to play the clarinet, an instrument which is wonderfully vocal and is so close to the human voice. By having more choices for the clarinet repertoire, my hope is that young players as well as
seasoned amateurs and professionals will enjoy playing these special delights at dinner parties, school performances, wed- dings, religious services or wherever they would like to share the joy of music! ~ Seunghee Lee
