A butterfly coughs in Africa, flaps its wing ever so slightly, rustling a nearby leaf which falls gently to the ground, adding its tiny momentum to a passing breeze, lending it just enough force to cross a stream into the open tundra where the wind now picks up and heads out over the Atlantic, ever gaining strength as it gradually whips into a frenzy, sending torrential rain down upon Bermuda, and turning inexorably toward the coast of South Carolina. Or something like that....

"A Butterfly Coughs in Africa" was composed for Mitchell Estrin and the University of Florida Clarinet Choir. The piece is very colorful and will be a great addition to your program. Instrumentation: E-flat Clarinet (divisi), B-flat Clarinet 1-3 (each divisi), Alto Clarinet or Basset Horn (divisi), Bass Clarinet (divisi), E-flat Contralto Clarinet, B-flat Contrabass clarinet, String Bass. Approximate duration: 4:34 minutes
