Does your clarinet quartet own four bass clarinets? If so, this might be for you!
A piece composed for FOUR bass clarinets and covering five octaves in a unquestionably funky way. The 4th part is perhaps the most taxing as it takes the role of a real bass and should drive the piece accordingly. That said, the other parts are not simple with the 1st part being a little on the high side. Not for the faint hearted this one but live performances I’ve been involved with have always been not only (because of the four bass clarinets in one room!) been a spectacle but also have always gone down extremely well. Well worth the effort!
