11-13/60 - Play Along 1, 2, 3 - Clarinet Duets

60/60 gifts 11 to 13

Lionel Liebe was a clarinet student of mine, and I am doubly thrilled that he took part to the 60/60 interactive composition project. Thank you Lionel for your participation, and the really active part you played in this project. Thanks for the three presents, for the discussion, and for the music you made me discover!

Premiere Concert

Petra Stump and Heinz-Peter Linshalm will perform an amazing concert on June 13th, 2008 in Vienna. The event is entitled Short Cuts, and will feature short works by 27 living composers!

I am honored that these two amazing clarinetists gave me the opportunity to take part to this project, and so glad that they will perform these duets. Remember, we played together in Karlheinz Stockhausen's Rechter Augenbrauentanz, his own excerpt/arrangement of Samstag aus Licht.

Clarinet duets for teacher and student

Play Along 1, 2, and 3 are three pedagogical pieces. After the premiere, I will make the parts available, so that clarinet teachers can use them freely.

In Play Along 1, the student learns to play with the mouthpiece only, and later to sing and play at the same time. Development of embouchure and ear.

Play Along 2 introduces quarter-tones and contrast between fast straight 8th notes and slow swung ones.

Play Along 3 must be played with much energy, much sound, much rhythmical precision, and much pleasure. "Estradally" is a reference to the group Estradasphere that Lionel Liebe likes and had me listen to. Check out their Hunger Strike.
