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.
