For clarinet and piano and first performed in 2004, and recorded the following year for Left at the Fork in the Road.
Fool's Errand was composed specifically for my 2004 grant recital, made possible by generous support from the New York Department of Cultural Affairs and the Brooklyn Arts Council. As such, it has a bit of an "occasional" nature about it. Its basic melodic germ, without any real development, is a two-bar clarinet phrase of a somewhat French caste. David Gould and Eleonor Bindman made the debut recording.
