Italian Concertino for Clarinet and Strings -- 1. Nello stile del Rustici

Get Flash to see this player.

This is one of the first pieces I ever wrote, and it must date from 2000 or so. It's the opening movement of a suite I wrote for clarinet and strings, and I tried for an Italian sound to the music. The piece has undergone many revisions, each to make the clarinet fingerings easier.

This tune is in the style of a Neapolitan folk dance called a saltarello, which is always in triple meter and features a skip to the step.

As always, the sheet music for this piece can be printed for a token fee at
My SibeliusMusic web page.

True composer.
Wow, why are you at MacJams instead of composing film scores? To my mind this is sort of a postmodern update of Handel done by someone who grew up enthralled by 8-bit Nintendo music. In case you are wondering, that is meant as an extremely high compliment. I've dabbled in experiments with classical composition, but I would not really consider any of them classical like this is.
