Program Notes

Pinball – an unfinished game for clarinet, violin, and piano alludes to the game played on a pinball machine, in which the player sends a small metal ball up a sloping board and scores points as it bounces off objects. The player tries to prevent the ball from reaching the bottom of the machine by pressing two buttons at the side.
