Suite No. 1 For Clarinet Choir
BOHEMIAN POLKA is based on a Bohemian folksong–a “fun” song in which a girl with blue eyes is warned not to sit on the bank of a brook–and is strongly reminiscent of the small village bands of the composer’s native country.
MEDITATION exploits the ability of the clarinet to express itself lyrically.
ALLA MARCIA, while maintaining throughout the regular pulsation of the march, has the inherent quality of a symphonic composition.
