Selected works for clarinet, 2009
Posted by Australian Music Centre on 15 March, 2016
A popular piece of moderate difficulty for clarinet and piano. Requires reasonable control of all registers on the clarinet, rhythmically manageable with a straightforward piano part. Middle section more demanding. (Ros Dunlop, 2009)
