Brightest threads creates a glowing sonority by interlocking melodies in a canon, with the focus on ambiguous but tenderly expressive and direct, simple lines. As it progresses, energy levels slowly build and then subside to a passage of stillness, interrupted by rapid runs and a return to the opening melodies.
Year: 2010, this version: 2013
Instrumentation: Four bass clarinets (or solo bass clarinet with pre-recorded audio).
Duration: 9 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Fast passages, large range
This work is a canon for three bass clarinets with an accompanying bass part. It may be performed with a multi-track audio recording prepared by the soloist. The style of the work was influenced by hearing Renaissance polyphony performances in Berlin.
