Burn

Clarinet and Wind Orchestra / Band
Rental product

Written for British clarinetist Linda Merrick, Burn was premiered by Linda in March, accompanied by Sheffield University Wind Orchestra (SUWO) conducted by Tony Houghton. The initial unaccompanied passage that opens the work was written during 2011’s “Arab Spring”, which dominated news reports of the time.

The haunting soundtrack to these newscasts (which were a strange cocktail of devastating, uplifting, angry, mournful, rallying and peaceful) was the calls to prayer.

There was no attempt whilst writing Burn (a title inspired by region’s climate) to directly imitate these calls to prayer, but certainly they had an impact on the opening passage of the work, and therefore the whole piece.

Rental Information

Renting is an easy process. Simply complete and return the rental contract and, once you have purchased your rental, the parts are sent to you. The rental sets come with one of each part, and you may make as many copies as required for your ensemble (these should be destroyed/recycled after the performance). After the performance you have 14 days to return the parts.

PDF sets will be stamped with the name of the performing ensemble/institution/individual(s) name and the performance date, and as many copies as required may be made of each part. These should also be destroyed/recycled after performance. Each PDF set can be downloaded from a secure link that is sent to you within 5 days of payment.

A rental is for one performance only, unless additional performance rights have been purchased. I would always advise contacting me about the rental first – discounts may be available for further performances in certain circumstances.

Rental is for parts only – scores are available for purchase.

If you haven’t rented before and have any questions, or if your institution has special requirements or makes it difficult to rent, please contact me – I am happy to help in any way.
