Aria for Bb or A Clarinet or Alto Sax and piano
Harmonically rich and seductive, with flowing lyrical lines interspersed with more dramatic, exclamatory sections almost like a recitative. Complex and difficult for both players, but a great showcase piece. Suitable for players of around Grade 7 upwards. The solo clarinet part is the same for Bb or A Clarinet, with a transposed piano part supplied.
