Description

David Maslanka was an American composer born in New Bedford, Massachusetts, in 1943. Throughout the broad scope of his varied compositional works, few have captured the stark contrast between joy and despair like his Concerto for Clarinet and Wind Ensemble. This piece has two large movements: "Lamentation," which reflects great mourning and heartbreak for both personal and worldly issues, and "Dance," which is a lively and vibrant look to the future and a new world. Maslanka drew from Classically styled titles and the Romantically styled qualities of expression, along with the technical difficulty and speed, inspired by Franz Liszt and Carl Maria von Weber to create what Maslanka called "a piece of our time."
