Janácek’s masterpiece in a convincing arrangement for Clarinet.
Foreword by the arranger (Eng/Cz/Ger)
This arrangement of the well-known Violin sonata is based on the volume of the Complete Critical Edition of the Works of Leoš Janácek (Series E/1–2).
The Israeli clarinetist Shirley Brill, who teaches at the Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin, has arranged the work for her instrument with a sensitive ear for the sound quality of the original composition. Her version displays the specific potential of the Clarinet to good advantage; in a few passages it proved necessary to adapt the Piano accompaniment.
The arrangement was commissioned for the International Janácek Competition 2014 in Brno (Czech republic).
