The first piece I wrote in New Mexico was a sonata for clarinet and piano called "Three Studies of Children," written for a recital given by my fiancée, Bonnie Buchanan, whom I had met at school in Kansas. It's a "pastiche" which celebrates (rather than mocks) childhood and early 20th-century chamber music. Though the piece had no direct connection with New Mexico, I remember feeling incredibly free while writing it, and I was sharing it with Bonnie. I was like the children in the piece I had written. Yet children epitomize our human predicament–they feel everything more–both pleasure and pain. Licensed by ASCAP #885253250.
