    Three Pieces for Clarinet Solo is a truely tough challange for the clarinet player in terms of phrasing, fingering, rhythm and even the melody is hard to conquer. The solo pieces begin with a slow first movement much of which uses chalumeau, creating a solemn and dark atmosphere. The second...

    movement proving the most technically challenging, moves in continuous sixteplets, seventeplets and uses the full register of clarinet notes. High registers of the clarinet are the particular run for this movement. The third movement provides the audiences with a hard driving pieces loud with energy and speed. Irregular rhythms, harsh tonality at times, irregular melodies and contrasting dynamics. This piece would prove an interesting and sophisticated for any concert, showing off the technically challenging skills the clarinet player has.
