and how!

solo clarinet & chamber brass

| gr. 4/5 |

    The expression "and how" is used to strongly emphasize or agree with something someone has just said or done. All but extinct now in societal vernacular, this phrase would have been heard rather often during the exuberant age of flappers and prohibition. AND HOW! reminisces somewhat on the musical styles of the Roaring 20's and puts the solo clarinet in the limelight. I imaging that had the piece been performed back then, that the ensemble and soloist would have been met with accolades of "and how!" after the rousing conclusion. 

    AND HOW! was commissioned by the Cedar Ridge High School Low Brass Ensemble for their performance at the 2013 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic and is scored for solo clarinet, 4 trombones, 2 euphoniums, 2 tubas, and 2 percussionist.
