Concerto No. 2 for Clarinet was originally composed for clarinet and orchestra in the winter of 2011-2012. It is performed here in a excellent transcription by the composer. The composer’s first-hand knowledge of the clarinet is clearly demonstrated in this concerto, which receives an excellent performance from clarinetist David Van Maele. The three-move- ment work, which is played without pause, opens with a dance combin- ing flamenco style music and new age idioms. The minimalistic second movement exploits the expressive possibilities of the clarinet, and the soloist and the conductor must be complimented for a most convinc- ing and moving performance of this movement at such a slow tempo. The closing Prestissimo dance movement receives a fantastic virtuoso performance from the soloist.

Op 28 maart 2014 speelde David Van Maele als solist tijdens het benefietconcert ten voordele van Dienstverleningscentrum Heilig Hart te Deinze.  Hij bracht er het 2de klarinetconcerto van Oscar Navarro onder begeleiding van de Koninklijke Muziekkapel van de Gidsen.  Deze uitvoering was eveneens de Belgische première van het werk en werd uitgevoerd in aanwezigheid van de componist.
