Two Moods for Clarinet and Piano – 2. Wind Chimes


And here is the second movement of my Two Moods for Clarinet and Piano performed by Steve Loew and Daniel Weiser in a house concert in Arden, NC.

In this movement, entitled Wind Chimes, I wanted to portray a feeling of freedom, release, and beauty inspired by the gentle, pentatonic scale rattle of wind chimes outside of my writing studio. Here I also pay homage to composer Aaron Copland with my soft and colorful harmonic palette.

If you missed the first movement, Haunted, you can listen to it in this blog entry.

If you are a clarinet player interested in performing my piece in a recital, a printed score is available for purchase here.
