Commissioned by Tonal Center Trio, comprised of soprano Tiffany Du Mouchelle, percussionist Stephen Solook, and Adam Berkowitz, clarinet. They are huge supporters of new music and naturally I was delighted to write music for them. I decided to write something lighter and more humorous, and stumbled across this great poem �The Duel� by Eugene Field. Field is best known as the author of �Winken, Blinken, and Nod� and this poem tells the story of a dog and a cat who… well, duel!

Note the bass clarinet is cast as the dog, the marimba is the cat, and the singer narrates the tale. A good skill at acting and storytelling by all three will help in performance!
