Divertimento, for clarinet, violin, violoncello, and piano (2013) – 6'30"

Divertimento was composed for the Blair School of Music's 50th anniversary. Blair began as a pre-college program, and all four of us who premiered the piece had been pre-college students at Blair. It is a vigorous, syncopated piece, drawing much of its material from a four-note motive at the very beginning, and a contrasting, more lyrical theme introduced in the cello.
