15-16/60 - Bagict - Premiere in Switzerland

Bagict is a duet for clarinet and saxophone.

I am thrilled to dedicate this work to two friends, musicians, and scholars: Ryan Raul Banagale (have a look at amusicology.com) and Michael Scott Cuthbert. Both of them are participants in the project 60/60. Because they joined the creation almost at the same time, I decided to pair them.

The piece is called Bagict: hear a little magic and a little Babbitt (it's related to the presents each of them chose - more on that another time).

Here is the current version of the first page of the score:

Bagict for clarinet and saxophone act 1 draft


We are very lucky: the work will be premiered next week by Vincent Daoud and Yuji Noguchi, wonderful performers of the ensemble Hic Et Nunc.
