Subj: [kl] Clarinet playing on a recently released movie
Date: Wed, 1 Dec 2004 13:04:34 -0500

To watch at home, I got a copy of "The Terminal" with Tom Hanks
as directed by Steven Spielberg with music by John Williams. It's
about a guy stuck in a terminal at JFK for 9 months.

But the movie is really a clarinet concerto for large portions of
it, particularly the end credits which go on for about 10
minutes.

Wonderful clarinet music and also some very excellent clarinet
playing. To correspond with the made up nationality of the lead
male character (from the country of Krakosnia, a pseudo-former
Russian republic), the music attempted to be slavic in nature,
but it turned out to be pseudo klezmer.

Good picture too, but who was that very excellent
clarinetist???????

I will give my basset horn (except for the bocal and lower joint
and bell and upper joint and peg) to the person who identifies
the clarinetist. No made up names please. Proof or source must
be supplied. Failure to do so will disqualify the submitter and
result in insults, flames, nagging, and no pizza.
