- Program Note adapted from publisher

The chalumeau (plural: chalumeaux) is a single-reed woodwind instrument of the late Baroque and early Classical eras. The chalumeau is a folk instrument that is the predecessor to the modern-day clarinet. It has a cylindrical bore with eight tone holes and a broad mouthpiece with a single heteroglot reed (i.e., separate, not a continuous part of the instrument's body) made of cane.
