Three Hasty Studies (2010)
Composed for the 2010 ClarinetFest® tribute to legendary Eastman teacher, Stanley Hasty.
Each short movement is based on one of Mr. Hasty’s teaching concepts:
I. H’tah Molly – Preparing the air before making clean attacks, creating a pyramid effect
II. Klose Calls – Expressive wide interval gestures passed fro one part to the other, with an optional multiphonic solo coda
III. Trill Ride – Keeping fingers close to the holes and moving evenly back and forth
