About Solomon Quintet
The Solomon Quintet is an instrumental adaptation of Jackson Berkey’s solo soprano song, For This, I Love You. The original vocal line is expanded for solo clarinet. The work opens with very delicate string and piano writing which supplies an ethereal foundation for the solo clarinet. A slight change of tempo adds the possibility of handbells. The clarinet soars as the instruments reach their apex, only to release their tension to a closing section which features the absence of the solo clarinet. The clarinet enters in the last phrase to bring Solomon to a quiet end. The Solomon Quintet is dedicated to clarinetist Kathryn Pirtle and the Orion Ensemble of Chicago, Illinois.
