The Clarinet Sonata No. 1 is a modern-classical (i.e. neo-romantic) sonata, consisting of four movements. The 1st movement is moderately fast and singing, the 2nd and 3rd are moderately slow and gracious, and the 4th (and final) movement is fast. Very suitable for educational as well as concert purposes.
On May 26th, 2012 Henryk Maszewski (clarinet) and Tristan Longval-Gagné (piano) gave a first public performance of this sonata at a concert in the concert series called Off festival des harmonies, Sherbrooke, Canada (together with compositions of Heinrich Sutermeister, Grazyna Bacewicz and Adam Swierzynski). Excerpts of the performance are on YouTube.
