Throughout her career she inspired more than a thousand piano students, which she brought into contact with masters from the past and the present. Christas own compositions have a high romantic style with a flowing melody and a beautiful harmonic accompaniment. This series of arrangements for bass clarinet is meant to encourage bass clarinet players to continuously explore the expressive characteristics of the instrument while playing famous classical masterpieces. This Neapolitan Dance Tune is a stripped-down version of part of the "Neapolitan Dance" in Swan Lake.
