Program Notes

This light beguine style piece is a wonderful feature for the clarinet section. Entirely in unison and in the beautiful chalumeau register for the clarinets, the piece offers an entertaining selection in which to showcase young players. Written in a simple ABA format, the B section offers a nice change with flowing with note passages in the horn section as it builds into a return of the chalumeau melody.
