Our gifted Composer-In-Residence, R.C. Barrows, has written a short piece
for Clarinet & Piano that may interest you. Since I'm not a clarinetist,
I can't speak for the difficulty or showpiece value of it, but it is a
wonderful piece worthy of inclusion on any program, as an encore or
otherwise, and, like all his pieces, it is tonal. If you are interested,
you can E-mail me privately and I will let him know of your interest, or
you can E-mail him directly at RRRR111@-----.
