Shadow Dance

clarinet, soprano saxophone, piano

duration 9'30”

Shadow Dance (2015) is based on the rhythmic motive heard in the first measure. The dance’s character develops throughout the piece – from a syncopated groove, to an uneasy calm, to a driving frenzy – as the motive is fragmented, expanded, embellished, and layered upon itself. Throughout the piece, the piano shadows the clarinet and saxophone by adding coloristic tones notes in rhythmic unison. At times, the shadow becomes unhinged from its source and continues the dance on its own. Shadow Dance was originally composed for duoARtia (pianists Jeri-Mae G. Astolfi and Holly Roadfeldt) and arranged for clarinet, saxophone, and piano for the Vine Street Trio (Laura McLaughlin, Drew Whiting, and Kirstin Ihde).
