In these variations for B-flat clarinet, percussion, and piano, the haunting theme of the folk song "Shenandoah" begins in the clarinet. The piano follows with all three instruments coming together in a lush setting. The five variations were inspired by famous pieces: Take Five, Canon in D, the Minute Waltz, Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2, and The Entertainer.
