Instrumentation:

Instrumentation Set Number 1:
  • 1 x Clarinet
  • 1 x String orchestra
Programme Note:
The first movement of Suite for Clarinet and String Orchestra, Hannah's Dance, is a lilting waltz and was inspired by the theme to the CBC radio show Music for a While. It is named after my youngest daughter, a fine dancer. The following three movements include a Satie-esque Pastorale, a sneaky Andante Misterioso and Hoedown, and end with a whirlwind Vivace that I recently adapted for an episode of CBC's The Nature of Things about bees.
