Last summer we had the wonderful opportunity to perform at ClarinetFest 2018 in Ostend, Belgium. Not only did we have the opportunity to attend many performances and classes but there was also a vendor area that we had to visit. One of the pieces we found there was It’s All Tumbling Down by Belgium composer Karel Van Marcke. Van Marcke is a composer, percussionist as well as a noted jazz pianist.
We will be opening our concert with this work, it is lively and showcases the sounds of each instrument in a way that not one instrument dominates and the other accompanies but both with equal importance.
