About the Work
La réflexion et la dispersion de rayons, which translates to English as 'the reflection and dispersion of rays', is an outstanding new work for solo bass clarinet by the young Japanese composer Azusa Yomogida. The work, with a duration of approximately 9'50", is highly dramatic and expressive, with frequent fluctuation of tempo and use of the full dyamic and lyrical capabilities of the instrument.
Although challenging, the work does not require the use of modern techniques or extreme range. In fact, the work does not require an extended-range instrument, making it accessible for a wider range of performers. The score is published loose-leaf to avoid awkward page turns in performance.
Alea Publishing is delighted to make this work available, and we look forward to watching the career of this talented young composer!
