Subj: [kl] It's done! A New Clarinet Concerto!
Date: Fri, 26 Aug 2005 16:36:53 -0400
Hello, Klarinet List.
My health has been much worse lately, and I've
now got nearly 1600 E-Mails on my computer to
read, store and answer, but at least I got this done
in the Orchestral C Score less than 2 hours ago.
"Concerto for [Bb] Clarinet and Orchestra"
(Aug. 2005, 3 mvts., 30' 27")
Dedicated to Professor Joze Kotar of the
Slovenian Symphony Orchestra.
I Allegretto 13' 00"
(The Cadenza is about 1' 35".)
II Lullaby - Fugato - Lullaby 8' 32"
III Lengthening Rondo 8' 55"
(The Cadenza is about 2' 08".)
Total Time: 30' 27"
Written from May 17, 2002, to August 26, 2005.
2 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 2 Bassoons;
1 Bb Trumpet, 2 Horns in F,
Euphonium and Tuba;
1 Timpanist: 3 Timpani;
Medium Suspended Cymbal,
the Solo Bb Clarinet,
Since this work has a Dedicatee, I won't show
it to any other clarinetists until after Professor
Joze Kotar has performed and recorded it. He's
already played a number of works that I've written
for him. He also has the first 2 movements of this
concerto in Solo Bb Clarinet Part, but I stopped
working on the Piano Reduction in the middle of
the Second Movement. Now I need to complete
the Piano Reduction for the 2nd and 3rd move-
ments, as well as the Transposed Score and Parts
for the whole concerto.
Meanwhile I'm starting to get some positive
feedback from experts in Europe and across the
US, to whom I sent copies of my Nine Categories
of Newly Invented Fugues a few weeks ago. Each
one seems to have no doubts that I am the first and
only person in history to have invented so many
new "categories" ("types", or "kinds") of fugues.
I gotta get back to the Happy Farm.

Newly Invented Fugues:

These are two listings for the Dissertation that
was written entirely about 4 of my Horn Works:

juvenile, paranoid Humans. I know this, because the
Space Aliens have told me so." - Bear Woodson, (2000)
