“Gabriel Pierné (1863-1937) was a French composer; conductor and organist. Despite being predominantly remembered as a conductor; his Canzonetta remains a recognised piece in the Clarinet repertoire. Pierné studied at the Paris Conservatoire before taking up the position of chief conductor for the concert series; Concerts Colonne in 1910. He remained in the post until 1933; and during this time; he notably conducted the world premiere of Igor Stravinsky's The Firebird. Pierné composed for a variety of instruments; Canzonetta for Clarinet with Piano accompaniment being one of four solo works by the composer. This Pierné piece for Clarinet contains many characteristics typical of the French style; such as lyrical melodies; a significant number of performance directions; flourishes of semiquavers; chromaticism and many changes in dynamics. Canzonetta is a varied piece; essential to the repertoire of aspiring clarinetists.”
