Leos Janacek: Sonata
Leos Janacek (1854 - 1928)
Clarinette et piano
This arrangement of the well-known violin sonata is based on the volume of the "Complete Critical Edition of the Works of Leoš Janácek" (Series E/1-2).
The Israeli clarinetist Shirley Brill, who teaches at the Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin, has arranged the work for her instrument with a sensitive ear for the sound quality of the original composition. Her version displays the specific potential of the clarinet to good advantage; in a few passages it proved necessary to adapt the piano accompaniment. The arrangement was commissioned for the International Janácek Competition 2014 in Brno (Czech republic).
