For flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, violin, viola, and cello. The Serenade for six players was written in Portland, Oregon, during the fall of 1968. It is in two movements, the first consisting of shorter phrases than the last, and more closed in form. In every other way they are one continuous thought. The title is lighter than the piece turns out to be. It is short, about eleven minutes, and compressed; and as the last piece I wrote in my twenties it took a new course, contrapuntal chromaticism, which greatly enlarged my vocabulary. Roger Sessions said it has "a lot of juice." —John Harbison
