Solo Clarinet work

Indigo for solo Bb clarinet- Alexa Letourneau

Rongbing Shen, Bb Clarinet
Close collaboration with Alex
Recorded for 2021 Sewanee Winter Festival

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.
