Composed by Gabriel Grovlez, Lamento Et Tarentelle is a piece for Clarinet and Piano. Initially written for the Paris Conservatoire contest in 1923, it is dedicated to a professor of the Conservatoire, Prosper Mimart. Quite difficult (6°, 7°), this work is perfect for the transition between the upper intermediate level and advanced.
Lamento Et Tarentelle is divided into four sections:
- Lento ma non troppo
- Vivo (Movement of Tarentelle)
- A tempo
- Piú Vivo
This really melodious piece requires the mastering of breathing technique among other specificities.
Gabriel Grovlez (1879-1944) is a renowned composer and conductor. He studied at the same time as Gabriel Fauré and composed numerous pieces for voice and some chamber music.
