https://youtu.be/SdLnrQfKID8   Birds Stop Flying: Black Velvet clarinet quartet

 

Clarinet quartet composed in a time when hopes and opportunities for my children and grandchildren seem to be suffering under the shadow of dark political and social events (e.g. Brexit, Trump, conspiracy believers). For me, birds had seemed to stop flying. There are various quotes from great composers whom I revere and who were imitating birdsong. But this should be a work with an underlying joy of play that Black Velvet quartet captured in performance.
