Written to sound like background music for a fairytale cartoon, Larry Clark delivers again with a tuneful musical narrative that students will love. Fable has an energetic and upbeat main theme, followed by a beautiful and cinematic slower theme. This would be a perfect piece with which to showcase your orchestra at a contest or festival performance.
I chose the title Fable for the piece, because it seemed to me while writing it that the piece was telling a story of some sort. It sounded almost like fairy-tale music for some sort of a fictitious movie about cartoon-like creatures. The piece was not intended to be programmatic in any way, but this seemed to be the direction in which the music wanted to go. The middle section of the piece should be in contrast to the lively first theme, and the "bridge" material in the celli is used as such in both the fast and slow sections of the piece, giving it a sense of unity. The piece is a good opportunity to work on spiccato bowing techniques. It has been my pleasure to have the opportunity to write this piece. I hope you and your students enjoy it and find it useful for your program.
