Canonic Variations
Score Only
Composer: Lamontaine
Publisher: Fredonia Music
Instrumentation: Flute and Clarinet

An American composer and Pulitzer prize winner, this piece has several movements.  They are Prelude, Scherzetto, Passacaglia and Finale. Written in the style of 12-tone serialism, these duets are an interesting exercise in what can be done with the theoretical manipulation of the tone rows used. While not as tuneful as some of John La Montaine's other compositions, they are a good example of his experimentation with other compositional styles.
