Ragahoro Breakdown

Ragahoro Breakdown is my second duo for clarinet and saxophone. It is a virtuosic musical fantasy combining textural and modal elements of North Indian Raga with rhythmic and metric characteristics of a Bulgarian Petrunino Horo with subtle hints of American folk music. The piece is a dynamic, temporal, and textural crescendo to the end.

Ragahoro Breakdown was commissioned by a consortium of 21 duos led by Duo Entre-Nous consisting of clarinetist Jackie Glazier and saxophonist Don-Paul Kahl. The work received its world premiere on June 30, 2015 at The Maryland Wind Festival,Trinity Lutheran Church, Hagerstown, MD.

Here is Duo Entre-Nous performing Ragahoro Breakdown at The Florida State University College of Music on September 20, 2015.
