Permutations

For Clarinet and Piano

 

This is a Jazzy one movement work making use of ostinati. Beginning at an Allegro tempo with rippling piano figures over which the clarinet plays a lively syncopated line. The second section is slower and makes use of the rich texture of the Chalameau register (lower register) of the clarinet. From there the remainder of the piece develops the material from the first and second sections with much interplay between the two instruments.
