Toxicodendron for Flute, Clarinet in A & Guitar by Nicole Chamberlain
Score and parts
“Toxicodendron” is the Latin term for Poison Ivy. The composer and her husband had terrible reactions to it one spring, including a quite comical trip to the doctor for the composer. Illustrated throughout the piece is the unceasing desire to scratch. It starts out with just a tiny annoying itch, but gradually works into a scratching frenzy with no hint of relief.
