I. Canti Breve
- Performer(s) Caroline Hartig, clarinet; Christopher Kachian, guitar
Three Pieces for Treble Wind and Guitar (1973-1974) began as a single work—Circular Rondo written for guitarist Jeffrey Van, guitar instructor at the University of Minnesota. The following year, Larsen composed Canti Breve as a wedding gift for her friend, Lynne Aspnes, then a harp student at the university. She rounded out the set with Presto Digital, a piece with motives links to Canti Breve.
