Reflecting on both literal and figurative definitions of flight and flying, FORMS OF FLIGHT presents works for solo and two clarinets in a virtuosic program by established and emerging composers of our time. This program is the result of the collaborative work between founding founding clarinetists of ai ensemble of New York (Alejandro Acierto) and Anaphora ensemble of Chicago (Cory Tiffin) who met while completing their degrees at DePaul University in Chicago.
