This is a piece I wrote for Eb Clarinet as part of a Brisbane based composition competition. With this piece I want to showcase both the characteristic well associated with the Eb clarinet and those which are not. The piece is a constant "battle" between the loud, bright and angular motion often written for the Eb clarinet and the hushed, careful and low sounds often avoided. I wanted to write a piece to not only challenge common preconceptions of the Eb clarinet but to show how flexible the instrument can be. Silence in this piece is every bit as important as any of the notes.
