Reviews

These pieces (March, Lullaby and Finale) are aimed at the clarinettist between Grades 6-8. The outer movements display considerable rhythmic impetus, especially the Finale which is perhaps the most complex rhythmically, serving to counterbalance the second movement, Lullaby, which is a highly effective piece of atmospheric clarinet writing needing considerable control to achieve the delicacy of tone and dynamic level required. An interesting addition to the clarinet repertoire. MAMAMAG 10/1987 The three short pieces in this publication are a March, Lullaby, and a Finale. The style is a fusion of contemporary art music and jazz. The March is a fast 2/4 marked by scale flourishes; the Lullaby, presents timing problems in that the piano part consists of tied triplets and held chords that blur the beat, as do the triplet cotchets in the clarinet part. The Finale is marked "vivace" with a predominant 3+3+2 rhythm in the piano; the clarinet part makes use of glissandi. An interesting and enjoyable suite. Music Teacher 02/1988 Jonathan FeBland has produced three commercial works in the jazz idiom which should have instant appeal to both listeners and performers because of their tuneful and simple construction. The first movement, March, is the most technically demanding for both players, with first passages for the clarinet providing a challenge for advanced students. Lullaby, the second movement, is as its name suggests quite sleepy, with sustained piano chords supporting an elegant clarinet line in triplets. The composer has asked for soft tongue and poco vibrato to add to the mood. The Finale has a basic rhumba rhythm throughout and asks for frequent glissandi from the clarinet. This work is highly recommended for players with an inclination towards jazz. International Journal of Music Education 11/1988 The college boasts a composer among the students, and Jonathan FeBland's attractive suite of "Miniatures for Clarinet and Piano" were played by himself accompanying the clarinettist, Mark Waterman. With echoes of the Gershwin of "An American in Paris", the jauntily urgent March, the Lullaby and the dashing syncopations of the Finale, showed a sure understanding of the clarinet in all its moods. Royal Academy of Music Performance, The Barnet Press 02/1987
