  • Item Details

    Adding to the sparse 'Percussion + Other Instrument' library, Kopetzki's Three Pieces for Clarinet and Percussion is a three-movement work for a percussionist using primarily a marimba, with other percussion instruments included for certain effects. A true duet, this is not simply a percussion solo with clarinet accompaniment or vice versa, and should make a lovely addition to any recital. It's good to have friends outside of the percussion studio!

    • Player 1 - Bb Clarinet
    • Player 2 - 4.3 Octave Marimba, Concert Bass Drum, Tam-Tam, 2 Tin Cans, 2 Concert Toms
    From the composer: The 1st and 2nd movements of Three Pieces for Clarinet and Percussion are more a conflict of the two players; the 3rd movement brings it to a 'happy end'. The main compositional element of the 1st movement is the motif of echoes used in different ways. The Marimba repeats chords, interrupted by irregular rests; also once with an inaudible 'echo' dampening of the chords. These rhythmical phrases are repeated by the clarinet with a great spectrum of dynamics. This dialog of echoes is interrupted by a dance-like part, in which the Clarinet and the Marimba play together; a short echo finishes this movement.

    In the 2nd movement the percussion player uses a small set-up, played with wire brushes. The intention of this movement is more like a clarinet cadence, interrupted by some rhythmical break-outs of the percussion player, ending mostly with a fade. After the 'conflict' of the 1st and 2nd movements, the Clarinet and Marimba combine in the 3rd movement to a 'love song', repeating some ideas of the 1st and 2nd movement, but now ending in harmony.
