Rohloff, Steingrimur: Clarinet Concerto 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Programme notes
    The Clarinet Concerto is divided as such in four movements:
    1. slow movement for Bb-Clarinet
    2. fast movement for Bass Clarinet
    3. slow movement for Bass Clarinet
    4. fast movement for Bb-Clarinet
    The work is originally written for the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra and Rúnar Óskarsson who masters both clarinets. We have worked very closely in order to go to the technical limits of the instruments and have researched so to say the inner lives of them. The sound world of the clarinet is then mirrored in the orchestra and it responds to a variety of techniques such as slap-tongues, glissandi, multiphonics, quarter tones and more. The piece was nominated for the Icelandic Music Prize and was premiered at the Festival for contemporary music: "Dark Music Days" in Reykjavik.
