Part of On Track, UYMP's Education Volume for Key Stage 4.
On the Run! lasts for about 2 minutes and is written for clarinet, violin, ‘cello and piano. The tempo marking is ‘as fast as you can without falling over!’ with a middle section telling the players to ‘put the brakes on!’ The piece contains hints of a country hoedown and is designed as a rather frantic run in a circle from and to the beginning via a cul de sac! The piece is dedicated to wonderful friend and author Martin Riley who rides his bicycle as if he were ‘on the run!’
