"Walking By Flashlight" was originally composed for soprano, Dawn Upshaw, and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, along with Jay Anderson, bass, Frank Kimbrough, piano, and Scott Robinson, alto clarinet. That version was recorded on Winter Morning Walks as part of a song cycle.  I felt inspired to write an instrumental version of that third song of the cycle to feature Scott playing the tender melody on alto clarinet. It's a very simple composition, but it's now one of my favorite to play in concert.
