We get frequent requests for information about Clarke’s great work, the “Prelude, Allegro, and Pastorale” for viola and clarinet of 1941. Our President, Dr. Liane Curtis, published this article about the work in 1999, just as the music was going into publication with Oxford University Press. We are happy to make it available here, with the permission of the article’s publisher, The Strad.
