Whirligig was written in 1983 to demonstrate and exploit the great agility and flexibility of the clarinet. After some pyrotechnical display, a short repeated motif comes into prominence. This motif is later picked up and developed further in the companion piece Gorlywhorl, which is intended to follow and complement Whirligig.
Instrumentation: Clarinet in B flat.
Duration: 3 min.
First performance: by Ros Dunlop — 2 Jun 88. Sydney University
'Whirligig' composed in 1983, and 'Gorlywhorl' in 1984.
