About the Work

This brief single-movement work for bass clarinet quartet is a lovely addition to the repertoire. It would make an excellent addition to a concert program. As it does not make any great technical demands of any of the players, and only requires an extended-range instrument for one of the four players, it is quite accessible for student ensembles.
