Morton Gould: Benny's Gig and Leonard Bernstein: "Riffs"

Benny Goodman commissioned as many as a dozen works from classical composers. These included Morton Gould’s Benny’s Gig, a collection of duets originally composed for Goodman’s tour of the Soviet Union, and “Riffs”, the third movement from Prelude, Fugue and Riffs, premiered by Goodman on the clarinet under the baton of Bernstein himself.
