Code: JP2105 ISMN: 979-0-3019-0218-9
Heart's Desire was originally composed for contrabassoon and piano.
It was transcribed for contra-alto clarinet and piano in 2014. The music
is a free fantasy based on the hymn "Herzlich tut mich verlangenn"
by the 17th century German composer Samuel Scheidt; the
title of the work derives from the opening words of the
hymn. In writing this piece, the composer emphasized the lyrical side
of the instrument although there is some moderate technique and a
section in the middle of the work in 7/8. Duration approximately 8
