Day 15 — Share Your Music: 30 Days, 30 Songs
Ladies and gentlemen, it is hump day in the 30 Days, 30 Songs challenge. I’m exhausted and I am not sure I can think of another 15 songs/tunes. I’ll have to play it by ear (groan). Clarinet featured heavily in my classical music phase, possibly because No. 1 son was a clarinet player. I might be biased (I know I am), but I consider the clarinet one of the most beautiful instruments in bands and orchestras. It has such a warm tone. Yes, it is time for some clarinet music.
I have listened to the following piece numerous times and I still love it. It was my son’s audition piece for music school. My goodness, kids really have to play some challenging pieces for auditions! One can’t help wondering whether it is an anti-climax when the young students get into the course of their choice. Anyway, endless music scales and practice was not quite as interesting as birds or native orchids apparently so that foray was short-lived. Nevertheless, we still love the clarinet, and hope that you too will love Carl Maria von Weber’s Clarinet Concertino played by Anthony Gigliotti.
