For flute, clarinet, and piano. Barn Dances is a set of four abstract pieces drawing their titles from the name of a particular dance step used in cowboy dances. Taking the name of the step as a point of departure, Larsen's idea was to take a flight of fancy in each movement and to create the musical equivalent of a character drawing. Thus this lively set encompasses various styles including hoedown jig, swing, and a waltz. Suitable for concert use by conservatory students and accomplished school musicians.

    These four dances are modern compositions for the upper-level college student or professional musician. The rhythm can be tricky but it's not bad; there are lots of meter changes but again it's not bad. The publishing quality is superb.
