I am currently (November 2019) writing a number of concerti for solo instruments and recorder orchestra.

Concerto for Clarinet and Recorder Orchestra (191102)
Sop, S, S, A, A, T, T, B, B, B, GtB, CtB

This is not easy for the clarinet and is actually intended for a clarinet in C rather than the commoner B flat instrument. It lies much more easily under the fingers. If Read more ...

If anyone is really desperate for a B♭ version do get in touch although one or two of the high notes may be very difficult.

1 An opening movement which has hints of a processional but laced with false relations to remind us of the early music connections of the recorder.

2 A second movement which is a set of variations on a simple little melody. Has challenges for the recorders as well as the clarinet.

3 A finale in rondo form which both in form and texture makes a nod to the concerti of Weber for clarinet.

This concerto is challenge for horn players. It is rare for even the best of horn players to get a chance to play a concerto and I hope that the piece will give them the chance. Recorder orchestras are such versatile ensembles and I think they will enjoy the experience of playing with a horn. The horn part lies somewhere in difficulty between Strauss First and second concerto with a nod to Franz Strauss his father in the second movement.
