Instrumentation: Clarinet Trio
This exciting trio was originally composed for trumpet trio, and is also published for flute trio and saxophone trio and also as a clarinet trio. It has been frequently performed in Ohio Ensemble Contests. Starting with a brief legato introduction, the character changes quickly to a light, bouncy melody that provides a rewarding challenge to developing performers. The key is C for the clarinets, and the fast slurred passages fit right under the fingers making the end result sound much more difficult than it is.
