Laugh With Bach for Bb Clarinet

25-04-2017 20:56

I worked on an album for  Clarinet Bb for intermediate level.

Irene Brouwer was helping me to get the exact level for intermediate students and I am very grateful to her.

There will be 10 little pieces even as in Laugh with Bach for piano, but because a clarinet is a totally different instrument, the pieces are 

also different but mostly with the same starting point, (title). Album 22 is published july 2017

Alvissmál

For  Renske de Leuw en Thorwald Jorgensen (harp and theremin)

The theme of the composition is from the  poëtic Edda and is about a conversation between Thor and  Alvíss the dwarf who wants to marry the daughter of Thor.

It is question and answer,  in the form of poems, with a improvisation played under it and alternated by dances.

Thorwald plays Thor and Renske plays Alvìss.

The whole composition is in a norwegian style, a kind of ballad and I have edited middle aged folksongs. It is like a painting exhibition you walk from one to the other.

Renske en Thorwald are going to use the composition for children's performances
