The three Scottish dances are traditionally performed as a continuous piece with no break between them. The performer is free to do them as three separate and discreet dances, or as a single piece with sudden but smooth tempo changes between each. Embellishments (grace notes, turns, and portamenti) may be added by the performer in addition to those included in the score, as the performers feel is appropriate to the style.
March, Strathspey and Reel was commissioned by the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition at Brigham Young University, and written for Jaren Smith Hinckley, clarinet.
