Composer Jim Odrich's new Rondo for Clarinet and Orchestra is a delight for any clarinetist. Odrich along with his brother, clarinetist Ron Odrich, decided the piece would be written for symphony orchestra, while giving the clarinetist the option to perform the solo part with either Bb clarinet or the larger bass clarinet. The result of their efforts is a work that features moments of contemplative lyricism as well as exuberant expressions of joy and excitement. Ron performs the clarinet solo, adding a generous sprinkling of ad-lib creations. The orchestral figures are performed with comfort and elegance, while the rhythm section provides a subtle controlled underlying pulsation that never gets anywhere close to overpowering the orchestra. This Music Minus One edition includes a printed edition of the complete solo part, engraved on easy-to-read, acid-free ivory paper. The compact disc contains the complete performance, as well as a version minus you, the soloist.
