    Hi, I am performing the Pastorale with a clarinetist and I am trying to find Amorosi’s dates for his recital program.

    What kind of piece is this?

    Hey Jessica,

    I don’t know the dates, but I was going to ask you about that piece as well.

    This piece is probably for the more advanced harp and clarinet player.

    Ha ha, my boyfriend is a graduate clarinet performance major so we pretty much own all the original harp and clarinet duets (not transcriptions of flute/harp, violin/harp)

    I accidentally sent the post before I was done.

    Title: A Perspective on the Art of Michael Amorosi

    Summary: Michael Amorosi arranged ballads for harp with jazz harmonies and a sophisticated style. He took classes with Stella Castelluci in which he practiced SATB choral writing in order to learn how to “sift out” the voices not needed. He published a book called Passionatus which contains harmonic layouts and full harp arrangements for the Salvi Pop Series.

    Does any one know if “Passionatus” by Michael Amorosi is available to purchase? I know they have a copy at BYU, but it’s too far to travel to Utah.
