Digitalis (Sonata for Clarinet and Piano)



Richly textured, emotional response to war memoirs largely inspired by a main theme of Tim O’Brien’s book The Things They Carried, that in the most traumatic and brutal places, beauty is sometimes surprisingly apparent. The sonic world of Digitalis evokes  an epic range of human emotions from brutality to serenity. 18 minutes.
