Notes from Composer:
In late February 2023, I had the opportunity to speak to bass clarinetist Andrew Platz about possibly performing in a chamber group with him. After a bit of figuring out details, we decided to form a quartet within Professor Daryl Coad's clarinet studio, and I volunteered to write a piece.
Andrew specifically requested a bass clarinet line "in the stratosphere," so I obliged by starting the piece of with a bass clarinet solo, with the three Bb clarinets acting as accompaniment. The solo acts as a precursor to the whole piece itself, which is called "Velocity" for three reasons: 1) The piece itself is about quickness and motion, having an almost cartoon chase scene feel in certain parts. 2) The piece is marked to be played at around quarter note equals 184, with sixteenth note runs and quick ornaments littered throughout the piece. 3) It was written in about 2 hours that I spent at the computer, writing away, quite inspired and excited for this opportunity.
