FOUR STUDIES (Based on the Book of Job), Op. 62 for clarinet solo were written in July 1991 in the small village of Cwm in Shropshire. The Book of Job caught my attention because of the beautiful illustrations by William Blake, and my work is in part musical commentary on them. The caption written above or below each of Blake's pictures is read first by clarinetist who then plays the melodic phrases representing these words, translated into notes by musical means, i.e. letter=note. 1. There was a Man in the Land of Uz (Ch.1: 1-2); 2. The fire is fallen from Heaven (Ch.1: 16); 3. Let the day perish wherein I was born (Ch. 3:3); 4. Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind (Ch. 38:1-2). Before the end, the clarinetist sings the folk tune Job (Come all you worthy Christian men) while playing a different melodic line. Listening to the first performance of the work (25 October 1991 in Ohio State University, Columbus with Bruce Curlette as soloist) I had feeling that the work is more akin to a sermon in music.
