In Dreams When We've Not Met-CL/BSN/PN

Composer: Brown, Stephen

Publisher: Imagine Music

Edition: CMS144


In Dreams, When We've Not Met
for clarinet, bassoon, and piano
by Stephen Brown- American composer

The title of the work comes from a poem by Philip Larkin:
Now, watching the red east expand,
I wonder love can have already set
In dreams, when we've not met
More times than I can number on one hand.
The melody should sound suitably wistful. Then, after a rhythmic, ostinato-based interlude, the second there is a big romantic line for the bassoon, to give that instrument the (all-too-rare) opportunity to show off its lyrical strength.
