The Clarinet Sonata was commissioned by clarinettist Christoffer Sundqvist and premiered by him in Stockholm last June. Sundqvist’s extrovert musicianship and fantastic instrumental virtuosity has been a great source of inspiration to Fagerlund during the compositional process. Sundqvist also inspired and premiered Fagerlund’s Clarinet Concerto. This is the Clarinet Sonata’s Irish premiere.

The first movement is founded on a continuous flow of forward moving energy in which different virtuosic "musical machines" interact with each other. The second movement is the complete opposite of the first movement, the musical expression is now static and intense. The movement is built around the same harmonic material as used in the first but this time presented in a slow and "spread out" state. In the third movement the speed in the music picks up pace and presents the clarinettist as a ritualistic master of ceremonies, who leads the audience through increasingly frenetic musical rites.
