Conjecture

Solo Clarinet and Orchestra

Approx. 9 minutes

2008

Written for clarinetist Richard Stoltzman, Conjecture is a one-movement work for clarinet and orchestra.

Almost every element in the orchestral music is in some way directly connected to what is coming out of the soloist, and in this way they work together to reach…perhaps not a consensus…but a shared destination.

Conjecture was completed during a residency at the Atlantic Center for the Arts. I want to thank ACA and my fellow composers there for their feedback, which had a major impact on the final product. The piece is dedicated to the memory of Andrew Imbrie, a great composer and a fantastic teacher.

Parts are available for rent from the composer, please contact jason@jasonbarabba.com for more information.
