My 'Three Miniatures for Clarinet and Piano' began as sketches for an asked-for, unused,
and unfinished work for dance scored for piano, clarinet, and vibraphone as well as
sketches for what was presumably a song, labeled 'My Eyes'; these bits eventually coalesced
into this piece during the spring of 1998.
