Did you compose this? If so, this is incredible. You thoroughly showed the everything the clarinet has to offer. This might even sound good on a trumpet (with a mute) because of its piercing tone. Also the accompaniment with the orchestra was very fitting.
I did compose this over a couple of months, but the real “composing” came over a bleak 2 and a half year point that lasts to this day of me losing a friend that was basically a brother to me. My freshman year, my school lost a friend that was near and dear. He was in the band; he played flute. That’s why if you noticed, you’ll hear the flute and solo clarinet conversing. That’s me (the clarinet) talking to my friend (the flute). Along this journey of overcoming, we as a school hit another roadblock. It was discovered that the chaperones and other students left him to die and told him to “f••• off” I made this piece in the style of the five stages of grief. This particular chapter is noted in the MM=180 section. We’ve started to come to terms that this will be solved and he will rightfully be avenged. Towards the end cadenza, there’s that small dissonance. This is the representation of the reminder that nothing is always tranquil, that someone has the audacity to swoop in and ruin some aspect of your life, but those final ascending lines are both his ascension to heaven, as well as our community rebuilding. I plan on playin this with my schools wind symphony in May 2019. I would love to see a trumpet or two play this. Maybe put a trumpet and a Piccolo trumpet together, it’d be fun!
