Code: JP2145 ISMN: 979-0-3019-0444-2
Reinhold Gliere, (1874-1956) was a Soviet composer, of
German and Polish descent. He achieved a high status in
the Soviet musical world after the revolution, largely
because of his interest in national styles. The Deux
Morceaux, originally for bassoon and piano, are taken
from a collection
of 11 Pieces, Opus 35, composed in 1908, and include two
movements: No. 8 "Humoresque" and No. 9 "Impromptu."
Although the Humoresque is listed first in the
collection, it is frequently preceded by the
Impromptu in performances. This Jeanne Music
Publications edition has been adapted by John Anderson
for bass clarinet and piano. The duration is approximately
3-3.5 minutes for each movement.
