Clarinetto d’improvviso

“Improvising on your own is like thinking out loud… and being with one’s thoughts is tied to loneliness. Moreover, the relationship with oneself is the most important. Being an only child, as a kid I liked playing alone. This I believe is something that has remained with me until this day.”

“It makes sounds come out of nowhere, carefree but with evocative power. She laughs and cries, is sometimes cheeky and shrill, then again gentle, enticing or mournful. No other wind instrument is able, like the clarinet, to voice a note quietly, to make it swell, decrease and fade away. Hence its priceless ability to produce a distant sound, the echo of an echo, a sound like twilight. It is the voice of heroic love.” Hector Berlioz
