Short Story
for flute, oboe, clarinet, cello, and piano
by Haskell Small (b. 1948)- American composer


Although there is no intended program, Short Story has a strong narrative quality throughout its single movements. The thematic material is mostly of an airy, lyrical nature juxtaposed with a chase motif and several sections of a gently jazzy flavor. It is essentially in sonata-form, with an introductory recitative-like section that repeats in the middle and at the end of the work. A short fugue based on the main lyrical theme precedes this final ending.
