Shelley I (clarinet)

10,00  IVA incluido / Taxes included

Shelley I is a piece that I created for clarinet player José Andrés Pérez in Murcia, while we were finishing our musical studies at the high conservatory.

He asked me for a solo piece and looking at him and his big size body I could perfectly imagine a piece on the Frankenstein creature.

So this is Shelley, a series of pieces for instrument or solo voice, created specially for a performer. This piece is the first one of the series.

Shelley I, for solo clarinet, is written in Murcia in 2004, dedicated to clarinet player José Andrés Pérez Castelló. The piece was born from musical experiments and sound games that both musicians made in common during several days, searching for new repertoire for clarinet.

The idea is evocating Frankenstein creature through timbric games: walking, falling, mechanism failures, feelings or sleeping. The process was very funny and interesting.

Clarinet player Maggie Greenwood included the piece in the database ‘Clarinet Repertoire’ at the University of Colorado (USA).
