Product details

Miniature IV is a single movement work in three sections. The first grows from the scalar movement at the opening, progressing freely through a series of continuous variations. This leads directly to the central section, which is marked by an argumentative duet between flute and clarinet. This settles, in turn, into a meditative clarinet solo commented upon by flute intrusions. A faster duet leads to the motto perpetuo finale.

Throughout the work, the ensemble is divided into three groups : the violin, viola and cello form a ripieno accompanying trio; the piano, occasionally soloistic, most frequently functions in an accompanying or "commenting" fashion; while at the top of the ensemble, flute and clarinet either alternate or function jointly as a solo unit. The piece is based quite conspicuously, therefore, on the classical concerto model.
