Moods for Solo B Flat Clarinet is an extremely difficult solo clarinet piece, only for the most technically gifted of performers. Ideal as a solo concert, festival, or competition piece. There are five Moods. Isolation Jovialites Anger Loneliness Desolation. Duration 20mins Composed for and dedicated to Roger Heaton. First performed 1980 at Huddersfield University. These are some of the most interesting pieces available for the advanced clarinetist. A Five Movement Challenging Contemporary Piece Composed for Roger Heaton. It has subsequently been recorded and released on two separate cds by two eminent clarinetists. PERFORMANCE NOTES Quarter Tone up. Quarter Tone Down. Rapid Vibrato (lip or Diaphragm) Lip Vibrato. Vibrato Quasi Gliss. Rough, breath, growl, play note, sing and let air escape simultaneously. ( End of “Mood” two ) Tone-less ( End of “Mood” Three ) All five “Moods” should be played freely with a general observance of bar durations and rhythm suggestions.

 Review.Moods for Solo Clarinet. Review Contemporary British Clarinet Music CD Moods for Solo Clarinet David F Golightly Modrana Music Publishers Ltd The most substantial and ambitious piece in this collection is undoubtedly David Golightly's Moods (1980) for solo clarinet, written for Roger Heaton who plays this rather difficult and technically demanding piece with consummate ease and assured technique. Golightly relies on a number of modern techniques, such as quarter tones, multiphonics, glissandi, breath tones and the like without ever giving the impression of mere experiment. Quite the contrary, each mood is vividly depicted with imagination and poetical insight. Obviously, to my ears at least, this is a major addition to the repertoire.Hubert Culot British Music Society.
