    From the introduction: "The opening movement contains much syncopation and is almost rag-like in style.  The slower second movement explores initially the chalumeau register of the clarinet in a theme that is taken up by the accompaniment whilst the soloist weaves a filigree descant.  This leads straight into the third movement, which is almost bee-bop in style and shows off the jazzier side of the clarinet."  Extended techniques are limited to a handful of finger bends in the third movement to bring out the jazz style.

    The score has a transposed clarinet part, so it is possible to read directly.
