Transcending by Larry Clark

Sharon Paquette Lose • Repertoire • October 6, 2016

Winner of the 2016 Texas Orchestra Directors Association Full Orchestra Composition Competition, Transcending is built on a four note motif first heard in the trumpets. These four notes are explored throughout the piece with fanfares, relative minor keys, Celtic grooves, the Dorian mode, counterpoint, and more.

The conclusion is a triumphant fanfare leading to a return of the main theme. This award winning work is an interesting choice for any full orchestra. Larry Clark is an ASCAP award-winning composer, has over 200 publications in print and is in demand to write commissions for bands and orchestras across the country. Besides his abilities as a composer, Clark serves as vice president and editor-in-chief for Carl Fischer Music where he oversees all publications and represents the company in clinics, workshops, and guest conducting appearances.
