Variations for Clarinet Solo

for clarinet in A

Richard Dudas’ Variations for Clarinet Solo is an 8-minute solo work with a bravura finale. Although it is intended for performance on a clarinet in A, it may also be played on B-flat instruments.

Program Note Variations for Clarinet Solo was written at the request of clarinetist Susanna Warren who premiered the composition in the spring of 1993 as part of a live clarinet recital on Classic FM radio in the U.K. Each of the variations in the set has its own individual external character in addition to an internal compositional device, including a variation based on serial techniques, and another composed algorithmically using computer-assisted composition. The composition offers an additional twist on the traditional variation form: the original “theme” used for the entire set is actually the central movement – a duet for solo clarinet.

    The Trio for flute, clarinet in A and piano has to be interpreted as a long Recitative. The original intention was to describe a metaphoric mountain climb with various happenings until reaching the summit. The work is divided into sections and it comprehends various combinations of instruments: flute starts alone with the first recitative, then […]

    The Rapsodia (Rhapsody) for clarinet and piano belongs to a new creative phase. It is a work in one movement divided into sections of opposite character. After a free almost improvised Tempo rubato, a rhythmic Vivacissimo suddenly appears. An Andante sostenuto follows with a melancholic tune. A short and agitated Allegro leads to the final […]

    The satiric piece Grottesca (Grotesque) aims to explore a particular area of humor. It is not programme music, although it depicts with irony the various accidents that can happen during a music performance. A close analysis of the piece should reveal this. For the first performance a sort of pantomime was realized to emphasize better […]

    I wrote the Divertimento for oboe, clarinet and bassoon in 1995 as an entry in the New England Reed Trio annual composition competition. I had admired the playing of this group and their promotion of wonderful, if rarely heard repertoire of this combination, much of it French. The prospect of writing for reed trio seemed […]

    Chiaroscuro was composed in 1991 for the CONVERGENCE Ensemble, a group of dancers and musicians, who gave the first performance at The Painted Bride Gallery in Philadelphia. In the concept of the dance, lighting played a major role, sometimes silhouetting dancers posed like sculptures against a light background, sometimes presenting them brightly against the dark, […]
