The Two Chorales are based upon the chorales to be found in my String Quartet No 10 (1983). In that work they alternate with movements called Sun Songs, movements concerned with the worlds of indigenous peoples and their landscapes. As in the quartet, here the two chorales express a longing for Europe, for the so-called Old World, and both are closely related to each other.
Instrumentation: 3 clarinets in B flat, bass clarinet in B flat.
Duration: 3 min.
First performance: by Clarity Clarinet Quartet — May 08. Canberra International Music Festival
