Program Notes

Commissioned by a consortium of twenty-two wind ensembles around the country, this version of Dance Concerto has the same solo part as the chamber ensemble version. First performance: February 9, 2014 - Stefan Van Sant, clarinet and bass clarinet, USC Thornton Wind Ensemble, H. Robert Reynolds, conductor.

- Program Note by composer


Crockett's Dance Concerto for Clarinet doubling on bass clarinet, and wind ensemble riffs on the theme of its premiere event at the Smithsonian, "dancing the night away until dawn." This expanded version for thirty-three musicians was actually part of the composer's original conception of the work, originally scored for nine total players. The work's form plays out as if the soloist were performing a set as the leader of some sort of dance band on this--or another planet.
