about

The compositions included in this album are part of an on-going academic research that focuses on extended techniques for the contemporary repertoire and new music for solo clarinet. The core of the "Clarinet Solo Project" is made of the two Sequenze premiered at the Bristol Cathedral in June 2009 and Rondo’ Contemporaneo premiered in August 2010 at St Martin in the Fields in London part of their New Music Series. Inspired by the famous line of Gustav Mahler’s, “A symphony must be like the world, it must embrace everything”, the Sequenze include sections of notated and improvised music. During the performance the clarinet is pushed to the edge using a wide range of styles and expressions in an imaginative journey around the world from Western European music to Afro-American or folkloric music of Southern Italy, from contemporary classical music with chromatic and angular-shaped lines to heartfelt melodies.

The programme is completed by a series of short written pieces where a variety of techniques are applied (multi-phonics, growl/flutter, quarter-tones, glissato, “timbral trillos”, etc) on scores that may well feature other effects (as in the tarantella section of “Rondo’ Contemporaneo”), or the use of the Neapolitan minor scale (also present in Sequenza #1) or even a short section of serial music (as on “Fragment #5”). Jazz Impromptu is a freely improvised track that includes short quotations from some of Charlie Parker’s famous tunes as a homage to the American saxophonist.
