Works with piano
Homage to Emily Dickinson for Bb Clarinet and Piano – Jackson Berkey
Première Rhapsodie pour Clarinette et Piano – Claude Debussy
Clarinet Concerto No.1 for Clarinet and Piano- Louis Spohr
Three pieces for Solo clarinet – Igor Stravinsky
Indigo for solo Bb clarinet- Alexa Letourneau
Alex describes her composition as, “I wanted this piece to incorporate a lot of different familiar elements (i.e. drones, twelve-tone music, jazz, blues scales, etc.) but in a way that the overall effect is kind of ambiguous and hard to pinpoint. “
This innovative composition by Alexa Letourneau was inspired by the color “indigo” and her appreciation of various music styles. With tremendous hard works and effort from both the performer and the composer, this piece was composed and recorded within a week and was one of the premieres during the 2021 Sewanee composer showcase concert.
