Instrumentation: b-flat clarinet, 4 double basses (4th part requires a low-C extension)
Duration: 8 minutes
I composed this piece for clarinetist Sun Hee Lee that wanted a unique clarinet quintet with basses instead of a traditional string quartet, and she insisted that the basses needed to have some moments to spin their instruments. Inspired by this concept, I created this piece with a spiraling, spinning-out quality that features some fun double bass acrobatics as well.
