This piece is "Winner of a 2003 Marmor Composition Award" (funded by the Marmor Foundation through the Department of Music at Stanford University). The purpose of the competition is to "enlarge the repertory of chamber music with clarinet." This rhapsody for clarinet quintet (clarinet plus string quartet, or for clarinet plus string orchestra) is inspired by the poem, "The Pripet Marshes" by Irving Feldman. This haunting poem describes how the narrator might put himself in the shoes of an omnipotent power, and transplant his friends to a Jewish village in the northwest Ukraine during World War II. Each person is a unique character with a human charm and frailties. Then he would snatch the village back to safety before the arrival of the Nazis. While the music does not directly mirror the story–this is not programmatic music–it does try to reflect the mood of the poem. Jewish-style melodies sweep through the piece with a whisper of Klezmer.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. Scorch generally works well if you're using a windows computer, but is currently not compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
