Limbs (2001)
Clarinet in A

Robert Morris

Program Notes

Limbs was written in September of 2001 while my outdoor piece Playing Outside was being produced and rehearsed. However, Limbs is concert music and is much more dramatic, taking advantage of the differences of range and affect characteristic of the clarinet. The form is canonic, using the same materials as in other works of 2001, such as my piano pieces About Chimney Bluffs and Meandering River.
