Krause Gateway Center (Des Moines, Iowa) by architect Renzo Piano

To Piano [in progress]

Instrumentation: Solo clarinet

Duration: 12'

Commissioned by: Greg Oakes

Movements: One movement

Program Note: To Piano was commissioned by Greg Oakes and is inspired by the architectural style of Renzo Piano (particularly the Krause Gateway Center in Des Moines, Iowa). The title of the piece has a double meaning: 1) as a tribute to the name of the architect and 2) to indicate my work’s companionship with Helmut Lachenmann’s solo clarinet composition Dal niente.
