Rondó - Fantasía para Clarinete y Piano

Recommended Posts

Great Piece! One question, Why do you have all the double flats and flats in Measure 17? Nice form.

I like the droll wit of the A theme and all of its recursions. What wasn't so clear was the reason they repeated and how they arrived back there, other than the requirements of the form. The outer excursions were rather truncated in rhythm and line, and so I felt that each idea was never complete enough to propel me back to A. This may be because such mechanisms were never given clear to the listener. Sometimes when you make a dress you want people to see the seams, yes? If only for clarity. imo I think you may be focusing solely on harmony and concept at the expense of myriad other things. Meaning, the excursions may have an academic appeal first and an aesthetic appeal second.

Because the chord is Gbdim7 = 1 - b3 - b5 - bb7 = Gb - Bbb - Dbb - Fbb

In this piece, i don't follow the rules of classical forms. The flowing of the parts is just "emotional". I didn't care if one part leads to the next one in terms of melody, harmony, etc... Each part is built on a particular harmonic system (for example Messiaen IV mode, etc...). Apart from that, my idea of "development" is rather "short". I like to expose the themes and just that. If there are repetitions, I always try to change something.

In fact this rondó can be seen as a mosaic form.

I know this all doesn't fit in classic "rules", but "classic" music is not my "first language" in music.

 

Thanks for listening.
