Project Concept


Retrospective projects can be an unconnected collection of works with little cohesive substance – not the case with NEW MUSIC FOR CLARINET…ANOTHER LOOK.  Errante has carefully culled his recorded catalog and compiled a widely diverse collection of clarinet compositions that document the maturation, beauty, and humor found along the time line of the development of this fantastically new body of literature for the clarinet.  William O. Smith’s presence on the project is axiomatic as the “Godfather of New Music for the Clarinet”.  Errante has assembled some of the hallmarks and pinnacles of this time of exploration for the instrument, but has left the distinct possibility for a second (and possibly a third) compendium of both historical and musical significance.


This compilation is a long overdue offering from an artist who has expanded and redefined the recent body of literature for the clarinet, and who has nurtured contemporary music for other instruments as well. These selections, spanning several decades, are navigational markers for the constellations of contemporary clarinet creations inspired by or created by F. Gerard Errante.
