Distant Mountains : for clarinet in Bb and piano

by Elena Kats-Chernin (2020)

Work Overview

Distant Mountains is part of the Isolation Suite (initially for piano solo) that I wrote in March-April 2020, at the start of the initial pandemic lockdown. I tried to write a piece every two days to keep the spirits up. I played those pieces to friends and family over the phone during those weeks to see what reactions I would get back. Some pieces got more approval than others. Distant Mountains from the start felt like it was a piece for a solo instrument with piano, rather than a piano solo piece. I made arrangements of it for clarinet and piano as well as violin and piano

The piece is in G minor, it has an Eastern European flavour, with a laconic three-note melody at its core.
