Escapades composed by Brian Balmages. For solo clarinet/wind ensemble. Solo/ensembles. Canzonique Music. Score only. Full set (score and parts) also available: CM7003. Grade 4.5-6. Score only. Duration 10 minutes. Published by Canzonique Music (FJ.CM7003S).

Premiered at the 2005 Michigan Music Educaotrs Conference, Escapades was commissioned by the Grand Valley State University Symphonic Wind Ensemble under the baton of Barry D. Martin, with Arthur Campbell as clarinet soloist. Since the premiere, it has been scheduled for additional performances in the United States and abroad. The piece gets its inspiration from the title, which can be defined as "a usually adventurous action that runs counter to approved or conventional conduct." This piece is a series of changing "escapades" (or variations) which develop and explore different aspects of the opening thematic material. The entire work builds into a free improvisational section before all elements of are united in the final presto of the composition (10:00).
