Op 61 Clarinet Quintet

‘for Nicholas Cox’     (19 mins)

Vivace
Slow
Vivace con moto
Allegro
Presto

The lyrical slow movement is the longest of the five, allowing development   by means of sequence and repetition. The vivace which follows reverts to short staccato motifs, characteristic of the clarinet, which quickly build to a moment of brilliance. A subdued middle section, legato, separates the final vivace.

First performance: 7 August 1995,  Bristol  (St George’s, Brandon Hill)
