Strange Shores - Tales from the Farallon Islands - Clarinet with String Quartet (PDF)

50.00

For clarinet with string quartet.

The Farallon Islands are a set of islands about twenty-five miles off the coast of San Francisco, known for their rugged and dangerous waters and wildlife, and for the huge numbers of seabirds that nest there. Each movement takes its inspiration from poetry by ornithologist and botanist Mitlon S. Ray, who explored the islands on several visits in 1904. Movement 5, Birds, utilizes pre-recorded bird sounds of many species found on the islands (mp3 recording included with purchase).

Eight movements:

  • Dawn
  • Strange Shores
  • Sea Gardens
  • Birds
  • When the Steamer Came
  • Sea Folk (and the White Sharks)
  • Solitude
  • Night (and the Warming Sea)

Performance time: 20 mins
