Product Description

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. Two sample pages from more active parts are available below.

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
