Scoot was inspired by the LSO’s versatile clarinet section who, Bethan says, 'have always brought a smile to my face'. It centres on short rising motifs, underpinned by mechanically clacking and chiming percussion and celesta to keep the music grounded. A climax after about two minutes or so changes the mood completely, however, and the rising motifs—which until now had sounded light and innocent—take on a more yearning feel, as though searching for something to complete them. Short but energetic, this piece is packed with incident and humour, including a very brief comic turn for the bassoons and a pair of false endings. Beware!
