Almost Half a Concert

Almost Half a Concert (5-part ensemble)


  • Part 1:  Flute
  • Part 2:  Oboe/Flute
  • Part 3:  Clarinet in B-flat
  • Part 4:  Clarinet in B-flat
  • Part 5:  Clarinet in B-flat


Keys, note ranges and technical challenges suited to players of ABRSM Grade 4 – 5 level or above.  Requires confidence in sustaining an independent part.

Generally, the challenge lies in fitting the parts together effectively to achieve a satisfying ensemble performance, rather than in the technical difficulty of individual parts.
