Concert Piece for clarinet, basset horn and orchestra in D minor, Op 114

composer
January 1833

 
Opus 114 has an exuberant light-hearted opening full of carefree banter, technically most demanding in matter of ensemble. This is followed by a quieter and more sombre mood with horns and strings which leads to the basset horn in arpeggio writing contrasting with the flowing clarinet melody, the instruments moving together as a pair or in imitation of one another. The finale is a gay canter, full of obvious enjoyment in which the technical resources of the solo instruments are exploited to the limit, concluding with a brilliant duet cadenza.

L’op. 114 recèle une ouverture exubérante et enjouée, toute de badinage insouciant, qui exige le meilleur de l’ensemble. Vient ensuite un ton plus paisible et sombre, grâce aux cordes et aux cors, qui conduit au contraste entre le cor de basset, à l’écriture arpégée, et la clarinette, à la mélodie fluide—ces deux instruments évoluant en paire ou en imitation mutuelle. Le finale est un petit galop allègre, plein d’une jouissance manifeste, dans lequel les ressources techniques des instruments solistes sont exploitées jusqu’à leurs limites, et qui s’achève sur une brillante cadence du duo.

Français: Hypérion

Opus 114 hat einen prickelnden, heiteren Anfang, geprägt vom unbeschwerten, scherzhaften Hin und Her der Instrumente, was technisch höchst anspruchsvoll ist, besonders im Hinblick auf das Ensemble. Es schließt sich eine ruhigere und ernstere Passage mit Hörner- und Streichereinsatz an, in deren Verlauf die fließende Klarinettenmelodie mit dem Arpeggio-Spiel des Bassetthorns kontrastiert wird, was sich entweder im Zusammenspiel oder imitierenden Wechselspiel der beiden Instrumente äußert. Im fröhlichen und vergnügten Finale werden die technischen Möglichkeiten der Soloinstrumente voll ausgeschöpft; es endet mit einer brillanten Duettkadenz.
