  • Part 2:  Oboe
  • Part 3:  Clarinet in B-flat
  • Part 4:  Clarinet in B-flat
  • Part 5:  Bassoon  (OR  Part 5:  Bass 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.

The download includes three PDF files:

  • Score (transposing) and parts for each tune
  • Concert pitch scores for complete set
  • Useful extras – cover sheet, contents list, information on the pieces, bass clarinet alternatives to bassoon parts.

Depending on your circumstances, you may not choose to print out all the material – for example, if your group includes a bassoonist, you will not require the bass clarinet alternatives.  However, do keep back-ups of all three folders for reference or future use!
