Character Pieces for bass clarinet and piano




In these four compositions Beatrix Becker invites pianists and bass clarinet-players to explore and experience the sounds and moods of Buenos Aires and Switzerland, of Jerusalem and New York City. Encounters between tango and klezmer, jazz vignettes and film music tell stories of life’s passages and transformations, of endings and new beginnings, of dreams, courage, and hope. Her compositions evoke a music full of joie de vivre and invites own interpretations in the dialogue of the two instruments.
