Desert Odyssey-CL/BSN/PN

Composer: Buss, Howard

Publisher: Brixton Publications

Edition: B357


Desert Odyssey
for clarinet, bassoon, and piano
by Howard J. Buss (b. 1951)- American composer


Following a visit to the desert Southwest, Howard Buss was inspired to compose a work based upon his impressions of the region. The resulting composition, Dessert Odyssey, for clarinet, bassoon, and piano as written during the Spring of 1997, and is dedicated to clarinetist Marguerite Baker. 

Although there is no specific program involved in this music, it does nevertheless have a strong narrative quality. Because the continuous development of material takes the form of a colorful chain of episodes, the music exhibits some of the attributes one might associate with a journey through the spectacular and awe-inspiring landscapes of the Southwestern deserts.
