Washington Music Ensemble: Lora Ferguson, clarinet; Lori Barnet, cello; George Peachey, piano

Exchanges for clarinet, cello, and piano is the chamber music version of a double concerto for clarinet, cello, and orchestra which was written under a Composer’s Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. In this version of the piece, a dialogue occurs between the two “solo” instruments and the piano; all three are treated virtuosically. The work was premiered by Washington Music Ensemble at the Kennedy Center in Washington in 1987, the year of its composition.
