Jolliffe, Edmund: Flying High. Clarinet & Piano
10 more tunes for Clarinet in B flat & Piano
Flying High is crafted with the same generous gift for musical enchantment as its companion set Taking Off, while written to a slightly higher grading. Marked ‘cool and a little mischievous’, the seventh piece Ready to Pounce features on the ABRSM’s Grade 2 Clarinet syllabus. There is plenty of gentle humour elsewhere in the collection too, in On Parade, The Big Top, Misbehavin’ and The Juggler. In On the Swings, Little Ditty and Loafing in the Sun things are easy-going, while the mood turns warm and reflective in The Setting Sun and Evening Stroll. The memorable melodies and stylish yet simple piano parts in all ten pieces show Edmund Jolliffe’s special gifts as a communicator tuned to perfection.
