The Sonatina Folkloristica for Clarinet Solo explores both native music forms - Tarantella and Cantilena - and the 'atomisation of the beat' in the untimed beginning of the Cantilena. This short three-movement work is demanding with playful moments.Charles Camilleri was one of the very few Maltese composers to gain international recognition. He was largely self-taught and was fascinated with the traditional music of his own country. Years spend in Australia and London led him to a successful career in light music and he later created a celebrated music programme for the Canadian Broadcasting System. Later in life he studied music of Africa and Asia and developed a systemhe termed 'atomisation of the beat' to accommodate the shifting rhythms and accents of more folkloric music.
