About

Taken from the Spanish word 'Alborada', Aubade (dawn) references Ravel's great work Alborada del Gracioso. Opening with a slow lyrical section, the mood ranges between languid and energetic, contrasting the opening material with characterful Allegro sections. Originally composed for clarinet and piano, the piece was later orchestrated for Frank Gurr, at that time principal clarinet of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
