Music for Clarinet Solo
for solo b-flat clarinet

Music for Clarinet Solo resembles a suite or set of character pieces played continuously and unified by recurring motives and by a slow continuous pulse that guides the rhythmic and metric development of the piece and marks the beginning or ending of most sections. The piece is dedicated to Mark Benson whose friendship and musicianship inspired this music.
