Description: My brother loved many styles of music, so I thought I would write a rag time. Articulation is a key element in this solo and there are a lot of syncopated rhythms in 2/4 time. There are two versions of this solo for the clarinet. The advanced version requires crossing the break more often.
Dr. Andrea Harrell served as a consultant on the clarinet solos in this collection.
