KNIGHT ERRANT

Woodwind Quartet [Part 1: Flute or Bb Clarinet; Part 2: Bb Clarinet; Part 3: Bb Clarinet; Part 4: Bass Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone or Bb Clarinet].

Duration: c. 2’15”.

[Moderately difficult] A wonderfully quirky piece, inspired by the eccentric nature of the knight’s move in chess. It is eminently playable, but the performers need to keep their eyes open for unexpected rhythms.

[Moderately difficult] By the composer ofThe Entry of the Gladiators,who described this Der Alte Brumbär (Bear with a Sore Head) as a ‘comic polka’. The solo instrument’s genial nature is well exploited by a musician who began his career as an Austrian army bassoonist.

Raymond Parfrey

Raymond Parfrey

PICCOLO SUITE

Raymond Parfrey

Jacqueline Sansum

NEW YEAR WALTZ

Clarinet & Piano.

Duration: c. 1’00”.

[Beginner] A beginner clarinettist’s first real piece! This short and attractive tune in waltz time encourages the player to bring warmth and feeling to the melodic line ‘. . . straightforward and pleasant, with a simple but effective piano part’. —Music Teacher.

 

PP0035. Clarinet & piano parts complete £2.80 UK; £3.25 Elsewhere.

Jacqueline Sansum

SCHERZETTO

Flute & Piano.

Duration: c. 2’00”.

PP0042. Flute & Piano parts complete £2.80 UK; £3.25 Elsewhere.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovskyarr Bevan

OVERTURE SOLENNELLE ‘1812’

8 Flutes (2 doubling Piccolo optional) with bells and cannon.

Duration: c. 7’00”.

[Difficult] The piccolos are not essential, but toy glockenspiels and pop-guns, or involvement of the audience as artillery using paper bags, has gone down well in performance. ‘A fun, shortened version . . . that works surprisingly well . . . The scoring has lots of antiphonal effects . . .’—Pan.

PP0014. Score & 8 parts complete £11.50 UK; £13.25 elsewhere.

and for eight bassoons . . .
