Windows - CL/BSN/PN
Composer: Wolfgang, Gernot
Publisher: Doblinger (Austria)
for clarinet, bassoon, and piano
by Gernot Wolfgang (b. 1957) - Austrian composer
Windows was commissioned in 2014 by Gary Gray, former principal clarinetist of the Los Angeles Chamber Symphony.
The main theme of this composition in one movement is presented in a variety of musical environments throughout the piece. In an allegorical sense, it is as if the listener was walking down a hallway lined with windows, periodically catching a view of the exterior. The outside world always stays the same, but the perspective of the viewer/listener changes from window to window...a chain pf parallax views.
