Clarinet Concerto No.1 was written for a solo clarinet with wind
band accompaniment. It is quite a demanding piece for the
clarinet, however would be playable by your most dynamic solo
clarinet player. Simple melodies interweave throughout the band,
with tutti sections all relatively 'tonic and dominant' melodic
Gaining a high-distinction in the assessment, it was written as an Australian university composition assignment with the briefing 'to be written for a solo instrument in the Classical Period style of 1730-1820' which is generally accepted in Western Music as the Classical Period.
As the tutti sections are heavily scored in some areas, do not let these sections overpower the soloist. If you have the full complement of wind band instrumentation, either all can play lightly or just have one per part.
Instrumentation: Solo clarinet, piccolo, 2 flutes, oboe, 3 clarinets in B flat, bass clarinet, 2 alto saxophones, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, bassoon, 4 horns in F, 3 trumpets in B flat, 3 trombones, euphonium, tuba, timpani, double bass.
Duration: 15 min.
