Description

This is the first of three works, one each for flute ('Flutetics'), clarinet ('Clarinetics') and saxophone ('Saxtetics'), which are all bravura explorations of the instruments' technique. (A shortened version of 'Saxtetics' won Saxtet Publications' Sax Scorchers competition in August 2001, and is the ultimate challenge in the fiery Sax Scorchers Album).

The Full Work-Out
The first movement is an out and out virtuosic exercise that will challenge the skills of even the most adept player. Along with the many practise-provoking phrases, the skilful use of grace notes and huge interval leaps attempt to give the impression of more than one player but at the same time provide the solo player with a most satisfying end result.

A Well Earned-Rest
The second movement is much more relaxed with a free and easy tempo, employing a whole tone theme, molto espressivo, which eventually fades away to nothing.

The Drive Home
Evokes that manic drive home - no service stops en route! Inspirational for aspiring jazzers who manage to reach the final destination.

Edition Notes

This piece imaginatively exploits many of the tricks and devices available to the clarinettist, and the music incorporates many complex and colourful phrases that provide the competent player plenty to think about both musically and technically over many practise sessions.
