Those Sweet Sweet Melodies
bass cl, pno

1995

This piece, with its frighteningly long title, was written in 1986. The roles of the two instruments are clearly defined throughout the piece. The bass clarinet charges jaggedly across its range from one zone to the next while the piano percussively fragments the piece with chordal stabs and occasional bass. The piece uses vertically symmetrical harmonies from clusters to fifths and is ridiculously syncopated. This is its first perfomance.
