For Clarinet and Piano, each movement of "Five Places" evokes a different place or atmosphere. On the Mountain depicts a hazardous mountain climb. Uncertain footing, cliffs, and other unknown hazards confront the climber, but he is rewarded with an awe inspiring vista upon reaching the top. In the Deep evokes the mystery of the deep ocean, where only faint glimmers of light penetrate. This movement utilizes the lowest register of the bass clarinet and piano to suggest the murky depths and a great sea beast. In the Cathedral uses as its main theme an ancient Aquitanian monophonic versus titled Novum festum celebremus. This melody, tossed back and forth between the bass clarinet and piano, is usually accompanied by a melismatic line that recalls the florid organum of a millennium ago. Under the Stars evokes a night spent under a blanket of twinkling stars. On the Edge of a Cloud is about a ride on the edge of a fast moving cloud, with its thrills and perils. The piece is based on a 12-tone row, but the row is used freely and is often combined with minimalistic patterns that help to rhythmically propel the piece.
