    Clarinet Capriccio

    Here's a light and lively piece for clarinet and piano. I hope you enjoy this work half as much as I enjoyed writing it!

    Lively indeed, Richard; delightful piece with some
    wonderful writing for clarinet. There's an engaging
    atmosphere to this, as though the clarinet is just
    about to lose control, and hanging on for dear life;
    perfectly created tension, with a great forward
    impetus to it.

    Best,

    Well, that makes me blush . Thanks for the wonderful comments. It was fun to write and by th way, I just practiced it on clarinet and it's playable though, as you say
    the clarinet is just
    about to lose control, and hanging on for dear life

    Rich, I should clarify: I did not mean to imply
    for even a moment that it was not playable.
    It is, of course.

    It's the way the figures are written and the
    rhythms are handled that give it that interesting,
    rather whirling-dervish feel.

    Again, nice job on this. I should think most any
    concert clarinetist would have quite a good time
    with this, as the writing lends itself to a lot of
    very dramatic posturing... lol!

    I didn't take it wrong, I'm flattered. It's precisely the idea I was after. After all, a capriccio is free style and impetuous, right? I was merely stating that I was glad to see (with a little practice on the fast 16th runs) that I could play it!

    Thanks again.

    Good job. This is well written and the piano part comes through very clearly. I like how you pitted the two against each other. The humor in the piano part seems to drive the clarinet. Nice piece.

    Rich,
    This is some great writing. I hear a yiddish influence in it but what do I know, lol. I am especially impressed the the articulation of the clarinet. Very realistic. Great job.

    Thanks, Bill. Actually, the intent was not yidish at all but the piece was based on a contrived scale that happen to have two augmented seconds in it, consequently the direction of the piece went that way. My wife noticed it immediately and my brother after hearing it said, "Oivay!". But, what do I know. I have been listening to some klezmer music recently .

    Thanks again for the comments.

    Thanks for the remarks. I know when you heard it yesterday, when I sent it to you it wasn't yet refined. I'm glad it came across a lot better!
