Reverie for clarinet quartet
Paul Juon (1872-1940), a little-known Russian born Swiss composer, wrote many excellent works that are rarely heard today. This clarinet quartet is an arrangement of his Reverie, op. 18, no. 3 for clarinet or violin, cello and piano. The first clarinet, and to a lesser extent the second clarinet, have beautiful romantic altissimo passages up to high F#. It pairs well with another piece of his, Humoresque, which is also available on ScoreVivo.
