Moods for Solo Clarinet. Review Contemporary British Clarinet Music CD

Moods for Solo Clarinet David F Golightly Modrana Music Publishers Ltd The most substantial and ambitious piece in this collection is undoubtedly David F Golightly''s Moods (1980) for solo clarinet, written for Roger Heaton who plays this rather difficult and technically demanding piece with consummate ease and assured technique. Golightly relies on a number of modern techniques, such as quarter tones, multiphonics, glissandi, breath tones and the like without ever giving the impression of mere experiment. Quite the contrary, each mood is vividly depicted with imagination and poetical insight. Obviously, to my ears at least, this is a major addition to the repertoire.
