Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra
Instrumentation: Cl solo/CD
Details:  Solo Bb Clarinet Part (comes with midi-accompaniment CD)
Contents:  "Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra was composed in 2004 and premiered in April and May of 2005, a commission from Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (conducted in Los Angeles by Jeffrey Kahane). The concerto was written for David Singer (principal clarinetist with Orpheus for the past thirty years), who premiered the work with both orchestras. In early 2003, David asked me to compose a clarinet concerto for him that would combine elements of classical music, folk, jazz, and klezmer. I wanted to compose a piece for David that would demonstrate his extraordinary range, depth, and virtuosity on the clarinet. Knowing that two first-rate chamber ensembles would be premiering the piece, I also wanted to engage the orchestra to a greater degree than perhaps is normally done in the concerto genre." -- Robert Livingston Aldridge
