Influenced by Bernstein's teacher Hindemith, this piece contains many elements of Bernstein's later works, including a brilliant jazz-inspired finale. o Robert Muczynski Time Pieces (1985) These robust, lyrical and virtuosic pieces have become popular with clarinettists all over the world in a short time. o Michael Kaulkin American Standard (1993) WORLD PREMIERE RECORDING This attractive one Read more movement work written for Peter Furniss won Honorable Mention at the 1994 New Music Delaware Festival. o Richard Dudas Sonata (2004) WORLD PREMIERE RECORDING Completed in 2004 and commissioned by the performers, this substantial duo is a deeply lyrical work, combining moments of great depth and tenderness with a brilliantly crafted finale. o James Cohn Sonatina Op 56 (1981) This is a delightful three-movement character piece with plenty of charm, wit and considerable bravura. o Victor Babin Hillandale Waltzes - 8 Waltz Movements Composed on a Theme by Johann Hummel (1942)A brilliant and popular set of highly contrasted stylistic variations on a classical dance tune.
