Clarinet Masquerade Waltz
£13.50 – £18.00
The “Clarinet Masquerade Waltz” is a charismatic piece for a fully-instrumented Clarinet Choir, ranging from E-flat to Contrabass Clarinet. The idea for the piece was conceptualized by Barbara Heilmair and Nicole Buetti after they had a performance together of a midnight waltz that Nicole had composed for PDX’s annual Vampire Ball. The idea of a haunting piece for clarinet choir sparked the commission of this work for the Zephyr Clarinet Choir. With a spooky waltz theme, the composition features the unique sound of clarinets playing together. The composition has a feel of an elegant and festive dance turning wild. The latter is achieved by off-symmetric rhythm patterns, drastic dynamic changes, and strong accents. Listeners can imagine a group of tipsy dancers being swept away by the intense music, trying to keep their balance. Or, one can simply enjoy the gorgeous sounds of low and high clarinets combined.
