Anthony Burr, clarinets
Personally, I think writing for solo performers is more challenging than multiple performers. As a composer, I want the piece to be challenging and interesting for the performer, but also captivating for the listener.
Movement 1 introduces a series of melodic fragments, and then rearranges each one to create longer and longer strings. Movement 2 uses 12 tone serialism. Movement 3 is free-form in structure.
