Bass clarinet and piano
Jonathan Russell and Kate Campbell on January 29, 2011
Composer, Clarinetist, Bass Clarinetist
The Sonata for Bass Clarinet and Piano was composed for my good friend, pianist Kate Campbell. She asked me to write something for a piano recital she was giving, but rather than writing a solo piano piece, I thought it would be fun to write something we could play together. The resulting piece contrasts jazzy riffs and grooves with quiet, lyrical sections, and is a true duet, with the piano in every way the bass clarinet’s equal.
