Duration: ca. 6′
Instrumentation: E-flat clarinet and piano
Cascades was composed at the request of my friend Jennifer Schundler Meyers, who wanted more music to perform for the little E-flat clarinet. The piece itself is composed in two sections, with an relatively free opening filled with flourishes and runs followed by a very rhythmic section featuring insistent gestures of repeated notes.
