RELIGIOSO - 2021 - 6’
For clarinet in A and Piano

Premiered by Willinger Duo in May of 2023.

score (free)

RELIGIOSO was written in memory of the composer Dmitri Smirnov, who passed away in 2020. Dmitri was my first composition teacher, with whom I studied from 2014-15, and I consider his lessons profoundly formative. He held an enormous reverence for the composers he considered “great”; primarily Bach, Beethoven, Schoenberg, and Webern. It is in that spirit that I approached this piece.
