Assorted Bits And Pieces

Woodwind Colours

Assorted Bits and Pieces (3-part ensemble)

Instrumentation:  

  • Part 1:  Flute
  • Part 2:  Oboe/Flute
  • Part 3:  Clarinet in B-flat  OR  Part 3:  Bassoon

Standard – IMPROVER

Notes and technical challenges within the range of ABRSM Grade 2 – 3 players.  Parts are more independent than in the easy-level sets, making greater demands in terms of counting skills and confidence.

Individual parts are not particularly challenging, so that players can concentrate on the ensemble aspects of performance.

The download includes three PDF files:

  • Score (transposing) and parts for each tune
  • Concert pitch scores for the complete set
  • Useful extras – cover sheet, contents list, guidance notes

You can choose what to print out, depending on your particular circumstances – so if your group includes three flutes, an oboe and a clarinet, don’t waste ink on the bassoon part!  Do keep a back-up of all three files for reference or future use.
