for Clarinet in Bb and Piano
27 min. •
Eternal Garden was commissioned by a consortium headed by Seattle clarinetist Peggy Dees. The four movements are “Lamentation,” “On Chestnut Hill,” “Elegy: August 6, 1945,” and “Eternal Garden.” The movements become progressively longer, the last being more than half the length of the entire piece. A quality of patience and quiet accumulates over the course of the four movements.
