Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra - score and parts, available on a rental basis

My Clarinet Concerto consists of four movements; In the first movement 'Entrata' the clarinet gradually 'brings the orchestra to life' by presenting different musical materials. The first part continues without interuption to the second part 'Rituale' where the role between the solo clarinet and the orchestra begins to change. A short intermezzo forms a bridge to the third, slow and intense movement 'L'ombra muta'. New layers and perspectives opens up in the music, but at the same time there is a motion inwards in the music towards something unvisible. After the third movement follows a second intermezzo in the form of a cadenza for clarinet. The wild solo leads towards the final and fourth movement 'Urbana' which is a minimalist, dancelike scherzo.

Working together with the brilliant and virtuoso clarinetist Christoffer Sundqvist has inspired me and also left its distinctive mark on the musical characters in the concerto. The concerto which is commissioned by Christoffer Sundqvist, Conductor John Storgards and Korsholm Music Festival was realized with generous support from the Madetoja Foundation, The Finnish Cultural Foundation and The Korsholm Music Festival.
