mozart - serenade (for 13 wind) ravel - pavane Tchaikovsky 6

                              Total Duration:  15 minutes

(i)  Mozart Serenade K361 (gran partita - 1st mvt.) 
(ii)  Nimrod (Elgar) 
(iii) Mozart Requiem (confutatis) 
(iv) Ravel’s Pavane (pour une enfant defunte) 
(v) two themes from Tchaikovsky’s 6th Symphony

These arrangements emerged from working with multiple clarinets, but without the benefits of extended family members like the Eb or Alto. With 6 Clarinet parts and 1 Bass Clarinet, these pieces have a fuller, more flexible sound than a normal quartet. The standard of the parts are as follows:
                               
                                Clt 1   (upper & lower)  G7
                                Clt 2   (upper & lower)  G6
                                Clt 3   (upper & lower)  G5
                                Bass Clarinet               G6

The recording is performed by the King Edward VI ‘Camp Hill School for Girls’ Clarinet ensemble.

As Director of Music of the West Midlands Fire Service Band, I purchased this set of pieces some months ago for our clarinet ensemble.  Arrangements of light, popular works for clarinet ensemble are plentiful and on the whole very poor.  Therefore, it is wonderful to come across a set that works extremely well with mixed ability clarinettists.  All of these pieces have been enjoyed by performers and public alike and we look forward to purchasing many more arrangements from you in the future.  Thank you.

I have played several of these pieces as part of an ensemble at school, and the seven-part texture is as much a pleasure to hear as it is to play. The parts are challenging, but not impossible, and these pieces act as a great way to improve ensemble playing, whilst also demanding you to deal with the technical and musical challenges within.
