Make sure you don’t play this piece too slowly (min 120 bpm). It needs a certain speed (and also precision) to unleash a sense of joy and an almost dance-like effect on your listeners.
This arrangement for three clarinets in Bb has strong connections with jazz and blues. It is in the form of melody/variations/reprise. The variations are written in free fantasy style, similar to a jazz musician improvising over a set number of bars and chords. If unsure, please refer to the audio recordings to get an idea of how the arranger intended the pieces to be played. Total length approx. 2 minutes.
Level: intermediate to difficult
