In Puerto Rico, compositions for clarinet have not been well documented. This research intends to create the first academic document to catalog works written for the clarinet by Puerto Rican composers and composers who were greatly influenced by Puerto Rican culture in their compositions, to serve as a reference to future scholars, teachers, and performers, and to encourage and inspire knowledge of Puerto Rican culture and its clarinet repertoire.

The annotated bibliography presents information about the repertoire including year of composition, instrumentation, program notes, and related information. This document also includes a list of the compositions by instrumentation.
