CLARINET AND WIND BAND
Clarinet Carillon - Alun Cook
for Solo Clarinet and Wind Band

A showpiece for Clarinet with Wind Band accompaniment. I had intended the solo part to be of about Grade 6 standard but it has turned out to be rather harder, but it is definitely fun to play. The band accompaniment includes plenty of cues for missing instruments, and having a good xylophone player is an advantage. Clarinet Carillon is also available for Clarinet and Piano. The MP3 (at the moment) is just a midi recording, nevertheless because of the limitations of some sound cards, it may give a better idea of how the piece should sound than your standard computer output.

Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso - C. Saint-Saëns arr. Alun Cook
for Solo Clarinet and Wind Band

A showcase for Clarinet transcribed from Saint-Saëns’ original for solo violin and orchestra. The piece is in its original key so you have to cope with B major in the final section. There are some difficult sections which may require practise and, as you will hear on the MP3, I found some sections challenging. A more accomplished performer might like to take some sections a little faster.

There is also a version for Alto Saxophone and Wind Band elsewhere on this website, but the versions are not interchangeable.
