Three Miniatures for Clarinet & Bass Clarinet


Three short and fun pieces for Eb & Bass clarinet, or Bb & Bass Clarinet! These pieces are ideal for students looking to improve their doubling skills on both Eb and Bass clarinet. Both parts use the full ranges of the instruments with some tricky passages to get stuck into.

1. The Tortoise and The Hare
A movement of contrasts - fast paced action from the hare set against a jazzy interlude from the tortoise, underpinned by a lolloping bass line.

2. Inside Out
This movement experiments with the different timbres created by the Eb and Bass clarinets at the extremes of their registers. Excellent for practising a legato sound in the high register of the bass clarinet and for creating a rich sound at the bottom of the Eb.

3. Double or Quits
A wild jazz-infused dance in which the Eb clarinet gets to enjoy itself on top of the bass clarinet's groove. The bass player isn't forgotten, however, and also gets it's turn to take a solo!

This edition comes with two playing scores, one for Bb Clarinet and Bass Clarinet, and the other for Eb Clarinet and Bass Clarinet.
