Askur & Embla-CL/BSN/PN or BCL/BSN/PN

Composer: Baek, Kari

Publisher: TrevCo

Edition: 1166


Askur & Embla- Frysti dagur kanska?
Askur & Embla- The first day may be?
for clarinet (or bass clarinet), bassoon, and piano
by Kari Baek (b.1950)- Faroese composer and oboist

This is the musical depiction of the creation of man and woman from the Prose Edda book Gylfaginning. The composer calls for the opening on bass clarinet but it is acceptable to play it on regular clarinet if the musician does not play or have access to a bass clarinet. Wonderfully depictive and creative writing.
