About the album

Comprising solo, chamber, and orchestral works, these four pieces span his career as a composer. The earliest, the Sonata for Clarinet and Piano (1959–60),reflects his early interests and influences. Goode later learned circular breathing and developed his own approach to minimalism and “process music.”

Circular Thoughts (1974) for solo clarinet is a twenty-minute guided improvisation. Representing both the ideas of gradual process and resultant patterns commonly associated with the music of Steve Reich,Circular Thoughts highlights the trance-like quality of relentlessly repeating melodic patterns and cyclic ostinatos.

Ländler Land (1999–2000) is subtitled “a waltz for concert performance and dancing for three cellos
and two pianos.”

Annbling (2006, rev. 2007), was composed for the Flexible Orchestra, a new concept in orchestral sound designed by Goode in 2004. Annbling is a trombone dominated contemplation of Mahler’s Seventh Symphony, Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos, a Sundanese pop
song, and the tragedy of post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans.
