Lowell Liebermann: Elegy

Liebermann’s “Elegy” begins with the clarinet’s beautiful melodic line accompanied by the piano’s (sometimes polytonal) tranquil, floating eighth notes… Not a piece for beginners, but very effective for a clarinetist who has mastered the highest register. Liebermann’s “Elegy”…is an important addition to the clarinet and piano repertoire.
