Camilleri: Sonatina Folklorista for Clarinet Solo

Books | Clarinet

Publisher: Novello
Composer: Charles Camilleri
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
The Sonatina Folkloristica for Clarinet Solo explores both native music forms – Tarantella and Cantilena – and the ‘atomisation of the beat’ in the untimed beginning of the Cantilena. This short three-movement work is demanding with playful moments.Charles Camilleri was one of the very few Maltese composers to gain international recognition. He was largely self-taught and was fascinated with the traditional music of his own country. Years spend in Australia and London led him to a successful career in light music and he later created a celebrated music programme for the Canadian Broadcasting System. Later in life he studied music of Africa and Asia and developed a system he termed ‘atomisation of the beat’ to accommodate the shifting rhythms and accents of more folkloric music.

          A large proportion of the work is published as 'play an octave higher'. Due to the complexity of the work I can not do this at speed. Therefore I get frustrated and play something else.
