A touch of the sniffles -inspired by “The Sniffle” by Ogden Nash – for orchestra



A jocular piece for orchestra inspired by Ogden Nash’s poem “The Sniffle”
The brave little girl Isabel who has a cold, blows her nose violently at the beginning and the instruments glissando and parp their way comically throughout the piece, going into a dance routine as she bravely skips and jumps while other girls with colds just moan and look like “a rained on waffle”.
