Sergei Prokofiev, one of the most famous 20th century composers, composed the Overture on Hebrew Themes in 1919 while he was living in the United States. The original instrumentation is clarinet, string quartet and piano.  The reason for this instrumentation was simply that the group who commissioned the work, the Zimro Ensemble, led by clarinetist Simeon Bellison, consisted of these instruments.  Some years later Prokofiev reorchestrated it for the full symphony orchestra.  It captures the essence of Eastern European Yiddish music with a humorous and affectionate manner.
