The first in a series of three, each movement presents a ‘quasi cameo’ of the character of its American origins.
‘Ragtime Cakewalk’ suggests the essence and style of this type of dance through the chuckling cor anglais, solid Bassoon accompaniment and counter line on the Clarinet.
In ‘Cowboy’s Toon’ the Bassoon provides a laid back foundation, whilst the Clarinet and Oboe duet side by side with a line incorporating some of the bending tones one might expect to hear from the cowboy’s drawl.
In ‘Barn Dance’ a sense of team enjoyment is portrayed, with the Clarinet line accompanied by high jinks, Vocal calls and clapping from the Cor Anglais and Bassoon.
