requiem : for solo bass clarinet

by Philip Czaplowski (2018)

Work Overview

requiem for solo bass clarinet was composed in March 2018, in memory of the great Dutch bass clarinettist Harry Sparnaay, who passed away in December 2017 at the age of 73. I first met Harry when he was artist in residence at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne in 1987. I met him twice more after that when he visited Australia, and wrote a number of bass clarinet works for him. Shortly after he passed away I decided to write this short piece to honour him, a wonderful musician who pushed the bass clarinet to the forefront of contemporary composition-and also a beautiful human being.
