Sheet music for bass clarinet & piano
In these four compositions Beatrix Becker invites pianists and bass clarinet-players to explore and experience the sounds and moods of Buenos Aires and Switzerland, of Jerusalem and New York City. Encounters between tango and klezmer, jazz vignettes and film music tell stories of life’s passages and transformations, of endings and new beginnings, of dreams, courage, and hope. Her compositions evoke a music full of joie de vivre and invites own interpretations in the dialogue of the two instruments.

Your music is my little "gas station" in the stressful everyday life. Sometimes it corresponds with my melancholy, sometimes it elicits a laugh from me. There is a lot of lightness in it for me and at the same time a pleasant depth.
With your music I like to go on journeys in my mind - be it to distant countries, be it to my own inner worlds.
Sometimes it seems to remind me of my hidden parts and to bring out long lost moments.
