Easy 4 Double Reeds

Instrumentation:

  • Part 1: Oboe (Flute*)
  • Part 2: Oboe
  • Part 3: Bassoon
  • Part 4: Bassoon

*Part 1 could be played by Flute(s), although this is probably not ideal for balance.

Standard – EASY:

Notes and technical challenges well within the range of ABRSM Grade 1 – 2 players.  Simple and supported rhythms.  Occasionally, more challenging rhythms occur, but only in tunes that are likely to be familiar to the players.

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