I find this piece so great to listen to. For many reasons. Why? Oh, I’m glad you asked. Here’s why:
- It’s familiar and predictable so I can work to it without being distracted by new sounds.
- It reminds me of youth music camp back when I was a wee one, either we played it? Or we listened to it?
- Clarinet music is just plain pretty, ok, pretty is probably not the right word. Woody? Haunting?
- This is cheesy, but it’s floaty. When the clarinet is weaving around it just feels like, let’s see, swinging in a hammock? Soft breezes? I told you it was cheesy. See #3.
