Alpha Centauri is a five-movement piece for Clarinet in Bb and Piano. It was inspired by Alpha Centauri, which is the closest star system to our solar system, clocking in at a mere 4.37 light-years away. The form alternates between three nights and two day interludes. The harmonic and melodic material are reminiscent of the time of night when the world is in its deepest sleep.
This virtuosic set would be a nice addition to any chamber recital or clarinet and piano concert.
