One movement chamber piece for clarinet, viola and piano, commissioned by Pacific Serenades

Artistic Director Mark Carlson for Pacific Serenades commissioned Pacific Serenades Trio for their 2004 season. It premiered with a series of three Los Angeles performances in March of that year. The performers were Gary Gray, clarinet, Roland Kato, viola, and Ayke Agus, piano.


I enjoyed being the fourth “B” on a program including works by Brahms, Bartok, and Bruch.  The piece is cast in a single movement and is resolutely tonal, in a style some have described as American.
