This entertaining sonatina in four movements (Daybreak, Chorale, Rendezvous and Homeward Bound), by an American composer,is both fun to play and listen to.  The first movement has a frolicking and optimistic character, while the Chorale breaks the traditional structure of a chorale in that each phrase gets a measure longer.  The third movement is in a lilting 6/8 and really moves along as it progresses to an exciting climax.  The final movement begins with a fanfare-like passage that gives way to a spirited dance, which is characterized in an intriguing interplay between the two instruments.
