CLARINET AND PIANO
Clarinet Carillon - Alun Cook
Clarinet and Piano

A showpiece for clarinet with piano accompaniment. I had also intended the solo part to be of about Grade 6 standard but it has turned out to be rather harder, so I have included "ossias" and a possible cut to make it more approachable. My original conception was for a solo piece for Clarinet and Wind Band (which can be found elsewhere on this site) but I am extremely happy with this version with piano accompaniment.

El Clarinete Rifirrafe - Alun Cook
Clarinet and Piano

Originally written as a showpiece for a solo clarinettist within a single reed ensemble (and later in a Clarinet Choir), this transcription is an adaptation for the soloist with a piano accompaniment. This "skirmish" in a Spanish style makes a great showpiece and provides a moderate challenge for the soloist who needs to be agile and in control of their high tuning. It is highly melodic and audience friendly and might bring out the Carmenesque in you!

Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso - C. Saint-Saëns arr. Alun Cook
Clarinet and Piano

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.

This is a distillation of my version for Clarinet and Wind Band, found elsewhere on this website.
