about

Winner of the International Clarinet Association Composition Prize

“The music itself is at once poignant and parodic, touching the soul, yet coyly elusive. Each movement is highly expressive, even romantic, replete with rhapsodic sweeping gestures; the harmonic language teases tradition, while maintaining a disembodied distance from readily recognizable tonic-dominant relationships.

“… [a] profound and deeply moving work.”

    — Eric Mandat in _The Clarinet_, Vol. 39 No. 3

“Paul Cantrell’s ‘Broken Mirror of Memory’ is that elusive creature that all performers are looking for — a piece of new music that is creative and fresh while being consummately idiomatic for the bass clarinet. It’s a fantastic addition to the growing repertoire for the instrument.”

    — Gregory Oakes

“The structure and the themes are ingeniously presented. As a listener you really have to go deep into the piece to catch all actions.”

    — Stephan Vermeersch

“Calls to mind the ‘autumnal’ sound of Brahms’s late works for clarinet.”

    — Eric Prindle

“This is full-blown modernist expressionist poetics … and a bit of a tour de force.”

    — Grego Applegate Edwards
