"Canción Para Un Clarinetista" – this "song for a clarinetist" is dedicated to one of the most outstanding clarinetists and pedagogues in Cuba, a graduate of the National School of Art in Havana / Cuba as well as the Conservatoire Supérieure de Paris / France. In this piece, the French “chanson” fuses with the genre of the Cuban contradanza, or to be more exact, with the spirit of this very style, which is the reason why I apply the term “tempo de contradanza” in this case. This “tempo de contradanza” refers to a kind of small harmonic cycle which embraces the spirit of an improvised solo and finishes this eight-bar fragment with the intention of a jazz-style riff.
