Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra

Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra


Duration - 12 minutes

Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra was commissioned and premiered by clarinetist Emily Tyndall and Cincinnati Soundbox. Written for string orchestra and clarinet in B flat, this piece is complete in two contrasting movements. The first movement is slow and lyrical with the divisi strings giving the clarinet accompaniment a light, translucent texture. The clarinet's melodies are the focal point of this movement.

The second movement is a fast, rhythmic one that uses an ostinato as the main theme. It begins with a jaunty gesture in the bass while the violins sneak in a little later with contrasting long notes. The momentum builds and then drops away to reveal a clarinet cadenza.
