Product Description

•••••
Nigun and Fugue was commissioned for the Inaugural Buffet Crampon International Summer Clarinet Academy in 2007 and premiered by the academy faculty. A nigun is a wordless prayer, often improvised by a rabbi with the congregation joining in as he repeats the melody. In this piece, the heterophonic texture that results from the gradual joining of all of the voices in a near-unison is contrasted with a five voice fugue that follows. Two sample pages from more active parts are available below.

Instrumentation: E-flat Clarinet, B-flat Clarinet, A Clarinet 1-2, and Bass Clarinet.
