Clarinet recital next week
UAA Professor of Clarinet, Mark Wolbers, presents a clarinet recital titled “The Long and Short of it,” featuring music for clarinet and the rarely heard BBb contra-bass clarinet. This fun and somewhat informal concert will take place at 7 pm in the Wright Auditorium, Wednesday, September 26.
The performance will feature multiple tonguing and other instrumental gymnastics for regular clarinet on virtuoso works by Arban, Paganini, and Kovacs. Music for the 8 foot-long contra clarinet will include works by Grainger, Muczynski, Fauré, and the work “Deep” by composer Alex Shapiro. This work features an accompaniment of electronic sounds that reflect the composer’s fascination with underwater ocean sounds.
