Galileo Beholds the Ringed Planet (2023) // 7'
This work was composed for Dr. Keith Northover. Keith premiered the work that the 50th anniversary International Clarinet Association conference in Denver, CO in 2023. The work was originally scored for basset horn and piano, but works equally well with Bb clarinet. *please specify which instrumentation you prefer in the notes section!*
The piece is structured like a French concert piece, with a slow, quasi-cadenza introduction, followed by a lyrical andante section, and closing with plenty of opportunities for virtuosic display.
