    Sparling 2000 is essentially an arrangement of Sparling, for clarinet and piano, which was written in 1992. There are several versions or arrangements of Sparling, some (e.g. version for clarinet and guitar, version for solo organ) use the original title but some (e.g. Sparling NZ (2003) for clarinet and ensemble, written for Auckland-based ensemble 175 East) have a slightly modified title. Sparling 2000 was actually listed as Sparling in the programme for the concert in which it was first performed…the title Sparling 2000 was adopted soon after the premiere.
