This work is suitable for solo cor anglais (or oboe). "Snake" is written in three sections. The first is rhythmic, free, and very chromatic. The middle section is rhythmically more measured and dance-like in contrast to the more improvisatory opening section. The final section includes rapid scale passages and arpeggiated figures and is extremely high for the cor anglais.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'a splendid little three page piece of moderate difficulty ... Subtly sinuous with wit and invention, it should be bought by all aspiring cor anglais players as a welcome supplement to the still rather meagre repertoire for the instrument' (Winds)
