Vasco Pyjama is a character created by Australian cartoonist, Michael Leunig, who writes, 'And sailing over the horizon in a battered armchair came Vasco Pyjama, the brave searcher who left all that was understood and safe to circumnavigate his own world.' This work received much of its impetus from the cartoon Vasco Pyjama in the Strait of a Thousand Lighthouses found in Introspective by Michael Leunig. It is tuneful and rhythmic, using various extended performance techniques to create atmosphere.
Instrumentation: Clarinet in E flat, clarinet in B flat, clarinet in A, bass clarinet.
Duration: 10 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — AMEB Grade 5-6.
First performance: 26 Oct 91. 'Avant-Garde After Dark - Again!', at New Lecture Theatre, University of Tasmania, Launceston
