 Copland Cadenza Interpretation?
Author: orchestr 
Date:   2008-10-04 02:15

This is similar to my previous post about the Messiaen, but I come from a school of thought of trying to play exactly what the composer writes. That being said, in the cadenza of the Copland concerto, every performance I've heard (probably around 20 out of 20), the clarinetist puts a big ol' fermata and break after the high D that's at the end of the third line of the third page (of my edition). It's 8 measures after the "a tempo (lively)". However, Copland writes no fermata, no breath, no rest, no shorter note value, the rhythm is the exact same as what precedes it and what follows it, so I get no impression that he wanted a break here. So why do people do it?? I'm baffled, especially considering my edition DOES have a sixteenth-note rest 6 measures after "a tempo (lively)" that I take as such an obvious cue to breathe or pause. Not to mention if you break the entire section into 4-bar phrases starting at the cut-time, the sixteenth-note rest fits just fine, but the high D is right in the middle of a 4-bar phrase! Maybe people consider the a tempo at the start of any 4-bar phrasing, but I do not hear it this way. Thoughts?
