Piano Accompaniment, Clarinet - Advanced - Digital Download
Composed by Philip Orem. 21st Century, Contemporary Classical, Christian, Jewish. 51 pages. Published by Philip Orem (S0.357821).

Item Number: S0.357821

A three movement set of virtuosic pieces for clarinet and piano, each movement representing a psalm. The first, Out of the Depths I Cry to Thee, Psalm 130, has a jagged melody, dissonant harmonies and literally cries with leaps of a seventh. The pastoral second movement , The Lord Is My Shepherd, Psalm 23, uses the American hymn tune, My Shepherd Shall Supply My Need, and gradually the pieces of it become the complete tune. The last, Make a Joyful Noise, Psalm 100, is a set of variations with lots of fun rhythms and meter changes, famous quotations, some klezmer, some jazz, some multiphonics and other fun techniques.

    I was privileged to give the first public performance of "Three Psalms for Clarinet and Piano" at Augustana College, Rock Island, IL in October, 2015. It is a very enjoyable and audience-friendly work, with interesting rhythms and some not-too-scary extended techniques and special effects. "Out of the...

    Depths" begins in a dark and moody place, but becomes more active and angular. The second movement includes a setting of Isaac Watt's hymn "My Shepherd Will Supply My Need", and could be suitable as a stand-alone piece for liturgical use, perhaps as a prelude. The third movement, "Make a Joyful Noise", includes many musical quotations, a taste of klezmer, some bluesy jazz, a couple of multiphonics, and some improvised sound effects, and is a ton of fun!
