Clarinet Sonata 1> Fantasie & Double
This Clarinet Sionata was composed in 1975 for Angela Malsbury and David Pettit. The forms of the three movements are all unusual. The 1st movement (Fantasie & Double) is in two equal sections. During the 1st section the clarinet and piano share no material whatsoever, and in the 2nd section they ’swap’ parts, and each plays a version of what the other had in the first section. The 2nd movement (Black Hole) is over almost before it starts. Webern wasn’t the only twentieth century composer to have a monopoly on knowing when it is time to stop. The 3rd movement (Mobius strip) is quite literally a Mobius strip. The music for both clarinet and piano was written on transparent paper, twisted once and joined head to tail. The piece finishes just as the return to the ’right way round’ section is reached.
