The title gives an indication as to what this cycle is about: “Lines” as a catch-all phrase for melodic relationships: differently formed – from a unison melody for two instruments to counterpoints of independent voices; composed in different ways – from “calculated” proportioning to spontaneous writing; expressive in different ways – from lament to competition.
If nothing else, these pieces are also a journey through all registers of the clarinet family, from Eb- and Bb clarinet through basset horn and bass clarinet all the way down to two contrabass clarinets.
