Clarinet Quintet

Annie Beliveau

Grade 12, Essex High School, Essex Junction VT

 "This atonal piece is for a clarinet with a string quartet. It uses texture, rhythm, and pitch patterns to achieve a sense of tension and release. It begins by exploring chromatic clusters in pensive and energetic ways, moves to a section that involves whole tone and twelve tone ideas, and ends in a furiously building section that combines several patterns from earlier."
