Leroy Anderson: Clarinet Candy
What’s about 26 inches long, uses a single reed and is often called a licorice stick? The clarinet! This instrument has found its way into jazz halls, symphonies, marching bands and klezmer bands due to its versatile sound. It can sound sad and soulful, sensual and acrobatic, or just plain silly, as in Leroy Anderson’s piece “Clarinet Candy.”
