Written for a master clarinettist "down under," Rae's concert work Two Antipodean Sketches are two movements of opposite sounds. Cloudy Bay begins the work in a dreamy, reflective fashion, evoking the calm beauty of the titular New Zealand region that gives us sauvignon blanc. Beatin' about the Bush! is a quick humorous exposition in 3/8 time, to feature the musician's desterity and technique. For advanced performers.
