Description: Offered primarily for Schickele's 1982 quartet (all these works except the Copland are for clarinet and "piano trio"), profuse in syncopation, jazz and folk music but with an affectingly melancholy slow movement before its dynamic finale. Larsen's rhythmically vivacious nine-minute piece was inspired by a painting of a Madonna with a gun (!). enhake with Corinne Stillwell (violin), Pamela Ryan (viola) (Copland).
