(Grade 4) Clarinet solo with concert band.
This is a great opportunity to incorporate a modern concerto into your band's repertoire, which will provide a fresh and appealing concert item for your upcoming season. The work follows the standard 3-movement concerto form with a syncopated, rag-like opening movement contrasting with a slower, beautifully "English-sounding" second movement. The third movement is based on a bebop style to show off the jazzier qualities of the clarinet. This substantial work is suitable for a Grade 4 standard band.
