Sheet Music: Score
Concerto for clarinet & strings / Philip Czaplowski.
by Philip Czaplowski (2001)
The concerto is in a single span lasting about 17 minutes, within which there are three easily discernible sections that correspond approximately to the traditional fast-slow-fast movement structure of a classical concerto. These sections are linked by clarinet solos, the second of which is extended to form a cadenza. The concerto also opens with a clarinet solo that presents much of the material that will subsequently be explored during the work. Reflecting my desire to use multifarious techniques to express divergent psychological states, the concerto makes use of a range of harmonic materials from tonality through chromaticism to atonality, and the work's rhythmic structures range from the quasi-improvisatory and rhythmically free solo clarinet passages, to the insistent, almost mechanical rhythms of the work's closing section.
