On a Sunday Afternoon
On a Sunday Afternoon is for clarinet quartet (Eb clarinet, two Bb clarinets, and bass clarinet). I composed this happy piece for a local group of clarinetists. While composing instrumental compositions, I usually don't think of the music as programmatic in any way--they don't express stories, just moods. So, I usually give titles to these compositions after they are complete. In this case, Sunday afternoon is free time, for fun activities or just relaxing.
