The goal of this project was to explore solo clarinet works over the course of the semester and to perform them in an unaccompanied recital. The project culminated in a full-length recital on April 21st, 2023, in the Recital Hall of the NIU Music Building. Each of the works that were performed explored a different aspect of unaccompanied clarinet music. The works that I chose required me to learn how to play the clarinet in a variety of different ways. Some of the pieces required a high level of technical efficacy while others required extended techniques, playing on different parts of the clarinet, and even acting. All of the pieces required a high level of musicality and preparation to perform.
