Mignonette is a movement from Amy Beach's piano suite, "From Grandmother's Garden, Op.97. It has been set for four clarinets by John Gibson. Amy Marcy Beach (1867 - 1944) was a pioneering woman composer at a time when women were barely considered by music publishers. She has been acclaimed to be the first important American woman composer. As a child Amy was allowed rather than encouraged to further her obvious musical talent. She wrote in a mature and virtuosic style for piano with use of chromaticism, fine melodic lines, and Impressionistic styles. It is those elements of Impressionism, using musical styles of Ravel and Debussy, that make ""From Grandmother's Garden"" so interesting to the performer and audience.
