This work was written by petition of the clarinet player Juanjo Mercadal to be included as a required piece for the II Concurs de Clarinet de Denia (Pais Valencia) of 2011. The intention was to write a short, dynamic piece in one movement in which the technical and expressive possibilities of the instrument would stand out. It is conceived in one movement without interruption. The piece starts with a mysterious slow introduction in the low register. A virtuoso Allegro, of irregular rhythm, follows, The central part of the piece offers contemporary timbre curiosities such as multiphonics, bending tones, playing and singing at the same time, etc . . . thus broadening the expressive possibilities of the instrument. The re-exposition of the Allegro blends some elements of the introduction with others from the first Allegro, ending the piece with energetic strength.
