All 5 movements of the Water Music 2nd Suite in D (HWV349) arranged for clarinet choir
Transposed into Eb so easier to play.
Arranged for 2 Eb, 4 Bb, 2 Alto, 2 Bass and Bb contrabass clarinets.
Alternative Bb parts are provided for the alto parts, and a contra alto for the contra bass.
The alto clt. parts although they are easier are the "horn" parts from the original orchestration, and have solo parts in mvts 1 and 2.....
so if you have no altos, and use Bbs instead, they need to be competent players to play the solos!!
The arrangement will work equally well for 10/11 solo players or a larger ensemble, with several players on each line.
Suite in D major (HWV 349)
10 Allegro (Overture) in D
11 Alla Hornpipe in D
12 Minuet (Trumpet Minuet)
They are not always performed in that order and often the trumpet minuet is used as a finale.
There is an optional seque Adagio between mvts 1 & 2.
