Alexander Shchetynsky

for bass clarinet or bass saxophone or baritone saxophone

This piece contains a collection of various types of expressiveness - a sort of "speech" with hidden "secret" sense. I expect the performer can explore here many colours of sound, different types of sound emission, and consider the text as a scenery to show really exciting "journey". However, there is no literary program in the piece. It is first of all an abstract music, and its main and only one "hero" is the sound and its inherent life. This sound arises, transforms and fades down according to its own rules which does not need any verbal explanation.

I intended this piece be convenient for playing and very effective in a good sense to give the performer an opportunity to show his skill and technical abilities.
