When you first listen to this arrangement, if you are like us, you will be captivated by the charming playfulness between the piano and clarinet. The writing for women’s voices is accessible, but quite effective. The most challenging aspect of the piece likely will be coordinating the ensemble of the instrumentalists, as the forward-spinning, 16th-note figures must move at a brisk and even pace.
