I began work on this piece in 2006 at Trinity Beach near Cairns, Australia. It was intended for my old school friend, John Mc Caw and his wife, Ann. Following a brilliant orchestral career in London, they turned in retirement to duo work and running clarinet clinics.

My tardiness resulted (for the first time in my life) in late delivery. The dedication remains but the work is my humble contribution to clarinettists wherever they live, work and play. They are a noble lot and the sounds they make are ravishing.
