ABOUT THE WORK: Peroket for solo bass clarinet was composed in 1999. Clarinetist Guido Arbonelli premiered the piece at the Mozart e il 2000 festival in Assisi, Italy in February, 1999. Peroket comes from the French word perroquet, meaning parrot. The composition includes a bit of imitation of birdsong as well as repetitive motives, both sonic and theatrical. This is a highly effective performance piece. The work provides technical challenges, but as it does not utilize extremes of range or modern techniques, it is quite manageable for the advanced student or professional player. The solo score is published loose-leaf to avoid awkward page turns in performance. ABOUT THE COMPOSER: Composer, performer and sound artist Peter Machajdik grew up in Bratislava, Slovakia but he has been living in Berlin, Germany for the past 17 years. At six, he began music lessons and at seven, took up the piano. In the 1980's he was not accepted into the Music Academy of Bratislava because his concept of music, at that time, was heavily influenced by the Western avant-garde. At 27, Machajdik graduated from the University of Economics in Bratislava, Slovakia. Machajdik first became internationally recognised after the success of his multi media work Intimate Music featuring one of the most innovative singers and percussionists David Moss at Inventionen 1994 in Berlin. His prolific output has since been performed and broadcast around the world, placing him in the front rank of today's composers.
