for clarinet and marimba
James Scott Balentine
Commissioned by Robert Walzel and Lisa Rogers, Texas Tech University
Duration: 7 minutes
Written at the request of clarinetist Robert Walzel, Line Drawings was premiered at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, with marimbaist Lisa Rogers in 1997. As the title implies, the piece features long melodic lines that loosely portray the character of the two diverse instruments, as well as outlining and implying the technical and timbral possibilities of both performer and instrument.
