Clarinet in Bb from Concertino for ’Cello and Small Ensemble

Concertino

Composer
Duration
7 minutes
Genre
Modern classical music

Concertino was written in 2013 and is for cello solo and a small ensemble consisting of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, piano and percussion. In one continuous movement, this piece lasts around 7 minutes.

The title suggests a miniature concerto for the soloist. Essentially, Concertino is in Rondo form, with the main theme presented by the cello with the other instruments following in rhythmically varied imitations (although the percussion is omitted from the first two statements). Between the three statements of the theme are two interludes which are faster and livelier in character and thematically loosely derived from the main theme. A climax builds up at the end of the second interlude, after which the return of the main theme is stated fortissimo.

The Concertino was originally written for a call for scores by CoMA (Contemporary Music for Amateurs), so the ensemble can be considered to be playable by amateur players.

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. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been 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.
