In 1966, the New York clarinetists Jack Kreiselman and Daniel N. Leeson were invited to perform the two Mendelssohn concert pieces for clarinet, basset horn, and piano at the Brooklyn Museum (which was broadcast over radio station, WNYC). Needing another work of identical instrumentation to fill out the program, Daniel Leeson asked Lane (with whom he served in US Army Bands during the 1950s) if he might write something for them.
Daniel Leeson remembers: He agreed, and from the moment we rehearsed the work it was love at first sight. Later, Lane told me that he agreed to allow use of a bassoon in place of the basset horn, which broadened opportunities for additional performances. Over the years we would see each other at local concerts and eventually he became a piano teacher for both my son and daughter. I am so very pleased to see this fine work published in such a splendid edition.

Publisher’s note: an additional bass clarinet part as substitute to the basset horn has also been included.
