Written in the Romantic Era style of Beethoven and Schubert, this clarinet quartet plus piano piece is in 3 short movements. The opening movement is 'Allegro quasi fantasia' with a shimmering piano accompaniment and hints of Dr Who. The middle movement is 'Largo - molto legato e espressivo' with a soaring lead clarinet line reminiscent of Mozart's famous Clarinet Concerto. The second movement segues into the final movement, a fast and exciting 'Maestoso' with hints of Pirates of the Caribbean.
Also arranged for string quartet with piano.
Instrumentation: 3 clarinets in B flat, bass clarinet in B flat, piano.
Duration: 5 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Clarinet 1 and piano have the hardest parts
