The compositions included in this album are part of an on-going academic research that focuses on extended techniques (and their application on composed and improvised music) and new music for solo clarinet. The core of the "Clarinet Solo Project" is made of the two Sequenze premiered at the Bristol Cathedral in 2009. Inspired by the famous line of Gustav Mahlers, A symphony must be like the world, it must embrace everything, the Sequenze include sections of notated and improvised music. During the performance the clarinet is pushed to the edge using a wide range of styles and expressions in an imaginative journey around the world from Western European music to Afro-American or folkloristic music of Southern Italy, from contemporary classical music with chromatic and angular-shaped lines to heartfelt melodies.

The programme is completed by a series of miniature pieces that have been premiered at the prestigious St Martin in the Fields in London as part of their New Music Series. Here a variety of techniques are applied (multi-phonics, growl/flutter, glissato, quarter-tones, timbral-trillos, etc) on scores that may well feature other effects (as in the tarantella section of Rondo Contemporaneo), or the use of the Neapolitan minor scale (as on Sequenza #1 and Rondo Contemporaneo) or even a short section of serial music (as on Fragment #5). Jazz Impromptu is a freely improvised track that includes short quotations from some of Charlie Parkers famous tunes as a homage to the American saxophonist.
