Program Notes

In a gorgeous debut published work, this Arkansas composer creates a lush musical soundscape using fairly simple materials. Starting with a four-bar clarinet solo, moving to an effective clarinet choir section, and culminating in several larger sections using some unique scoring ideas, the simple beauty of folk-like melodies is presented in a simply irresistible new band composition.

- Program Note from publisher

Fields of Clover is written in the style of Irish folk music, although it is not based on one. The piece begins with a clarinet solo which evolves into a clarinet choir. I actually wrote the tune when I was 14 and never forgot it. I brought it to a composition lesson with Dr. O’Connor one day, and he said “Hey, this would make a great band piece!” The rest is history.

It was premiered in 2000 by the Arkansas State University Symphonic Band and their conductor, Mr. Ed Alexander. This was my first taste of hearing a band piece played by a real, breathing ensemble. I have been addicted ever since.
