Daydream in A-flat

Clarinet Alone




Daydream in A-flat (2005) evokes a state of sweet semi-consciousness. This 12-minute unaccompanied clarinet solo is fashioned in a way that should allow the listener notice the cyclical returns of tunes and gestures, and to be consciously aware of implicit relationships of tonality (yes, the piece really is all about the sounding key of A-flat major). But at the same time, the music should resonate deep in the listener’s subconscious, stirring feelings and fantasies that are too primordial to be captured in conscious thought.
