Fiendishly difficult, Red Clover is a literally breathtaking weird and wonderful novelty that is a listening experience par excellence, especially on the first hearing. Its form is AABBACCA with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude preceding the final A-strain whereby the A- and BC-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively.
Somewhat of a novelty in this adaptation for recorder quintet is that the treble and great bass voices alternate to sopranino and treble respectively for the opening two bars. Amongst the most difficult pieces in the catalogue, Red Clover is a joy to master and definitely not for the faint-hearted.
Red Clover was published by Jack Mills Inc., New York, USA.
A tempo of 120 crotchets/min. is suggested.
