Legend : for clarinet and piano / Miriam Hyde.

Library shelf no. 788.62/HYD 2 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Legend is based on a Maori myth about the creation of New Zealand's North Island. Maui, the youngest of five sons, was given a magic jawbone belonging to his grandmother. One night, with a fishhook made from this bone, he caught a huge fish. After a great struggle he hauled his catch to the surface, and it became the North Island. The clarinet cadenza represents the casting of the line.
