One thought on “García The Distant Wind III

    el viento distante III was written for virtuoso clarinetist Michael Norsworthy and the Amernet string quartet and is based on el viento distante II written for the clarinetist Wojciech Mrozek in January 2013. The new work written at the FIU Miami Beach Urban Studios for premiere at the New Music Miami Festival in April 2016, retains what the earlier piece exhibits namely my aesthetic concerns while displaying the control, virtuosity, and musicianship of the soloist. While the solo clarinet part in this new work is very similar to the one in el viento distante II adjustments to sonorities and timbres as well as the increase in the number of wind chime parts make it a somewhat different work. As with much of my music the focus on timbre, the counterpoint between pacing, timbre, and density, and the slow evolution of material are important concerns. OJG
