Sheet Music: Score
The wellbeing clarinet concertino : for clarinet in Bb and string orchestra / Christopher Sainsbury.
by Christopher Sainsbury (1993)
Cut from the cloth of our 'tonal wealth' in regional Australia. I feel a concertino is more direct in expression than a concerto. It's essentially just the themes and almost no development. You can't decorate it in 'the illusion of substance'. It's called the Wellbeing Concertino and I think you need three things for wellbeing - A Call, some Enchantment, and Jubilation and that's what the three movements are called. It's pretty melodic stuff, no 'deep' moments, the clarinet part is not overtly busy, and essentially it's one of my regionalist pieces. It's appealing, fun, and it comes together pretty quickly in rehearsal.
