De Peyer and Horovitz first met as students at the Royal College of Music in London during 1948, respectively as pupils of Frederick ‘Thurston (clarinet) and Gordon Jacob (composition), A further year of study brought them together again in Paris, under Louis Cahuzac and Nadia Boulanger. This friendship has resulted in several compositions by Horovitz, including “Concertante for clarinet and strings" (ed, Chester & Co.) and ‘Two majorcan pieces’ and ‘Concerto for clarinet and string orchestra’ (both ed. Belwin Mills) ‘The Sonatina is lighthearted and follows a traditional pattern of the three movement division. The first, in classical sonata form, concentrates on the middle register of the clarinet, mainly lyrical against a rippling piano background. The second movement is an A-B-A song structure employing some of the lowest notes of the wind instrument in a long cantilena over a slow chordal accompaniment. The finale is a kind of rondo which alternates two themes in equal proportions, exploiting the upper register of the clarinet. The harmonic idiom of the whole work is obviously tonal, and, like ‘most recent compositions of Horovitz, the Sonatina is melodically and rhythmically much influenced by Jazz and other popular music. It calls for equal virtuosity from both players.
