[E-flat, 2 B-flat, BC] Although the melodies and harmonies of this piece are entirely original and refer to no distinct source, in these two movements the composer aimed to celebrate a kind of music she has always loved "" folk music, and emphasized the musical aspects generally thought of as "˜folk-like'. The two most distinct and clearest emphases are on sweet melody, streaming ahead without undue pressure or distortion; and zesty pulse, dancing past continuously in lively, extrovert manner.

There are 2 movements, slow and fast. Inward-looking consonance underlies the tune composed for SONG, which requires high expressivity from every player. Sharper dissonances, and rhythmic sharpness (syncopation is highlighted) generate DANCE, whose steady, fast pulse has no give. The work is scored for E-flat clarinet, 2 B-flat clarinets, and bass clarinet. Total duration of both movements is 8.5 minutes.
