When I came across this piece of music, I didn’t expect to hear the beautiful tones of the solo clarinet, which seem quite improvised and loose. I very much liked how the meanderings of the clarinet were so reminiscent of an early sunny morning where everything is just beginning and the strings flow like water or wind through trees.

Being a clarinet player, I can admire the skill of Frédéric Vauthier as he plays the intricate note combinations with amazing ease.  I was never really fond of how the clarinet sounded when I played it, but hearing much more talented musicians coax wonderful sounds from this instrument makes me appreciate how versatile the clarinet truly is. In this piece of music, the combination of breezy strings and bright clarinet also makes me think of relaxing outdoors on a summer day. What does it make you think of?
