Product Description

•••••
Virtuoso solo for clarinet and wind ensemble by Paul Richards. Snake in the Garden is a loose rendering of the tale of the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. The solo clarinet intrudes with dissonant material upon an idyllic opening by the accompaniment, tempting the ensemble into an extended dance. God's wrath is heard twice: the first time followed by a brief, seductive cadenza; the second time leading to a return of the opening material, where the dissonant music of the solo clarinet is integrated into the tranquil garden music. Duration: approximately 11.5 minutes.

The set includes a solo clarinet part, ensemble performance parts (1 each), and full wind ensemble score. Extra wind parts are available although the composer conceived of the wind parts with one player/part.
