The 10 inventions for flute and clarinet were composed in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, in 2012. At the time I was practicing the 15 Two-Part inventions by J.S. Bach, as well as listening to Prokofiev. I think these were the two main musical influences. What inspired me to write for flute and clarinet specifically was when I heard, in 2011, the duets for flute and clarinet by Robert Muczynski (performed by Amy Hamilton and Peter Shackleton, to whom the pieces are dedicated). I fell in love with the way the two voices could weave around each other and create overtones, something that found it’s way (unintentionally) into no. 7. Also, the dexterity and range of the instruments is fantastic, and I wanted to contribute to the repertoire of such great instruments! The goal was to create 15 to mirror the 15 Two-Part inventions, but I never got there. Maybe some day!
