for English horn and piano
by Andrea Clearfield (b. 1960)- American composer
Commissioned by George Corbett to commemorate a loved one, C.B. The music plays with the relationship between the initials, "C.B." and "G.C." Concealed within the texture are melodic and harmonic fragments of the popular song, "Close to You", as a memento from a music box. Rhapsodic and lyrical passages enclose a scherzando and fugal section.
