  • Concerto for Clarinet Part 2

    Here is Part 2 of Artie Shaw's stunning Concerto for Clarinet. The chart opens with four stylish Clarinet cadenzas, after which the drummer picks up the tempo with a floor-tom solo, joined by solo Clarinet for 40 measures. Briefly into 3/4 time for band chord stabs, the Clarinet & Drum solo continues. Another time shift for more stabs, then three tutti swing choruses to a false finish. The clarinet solo wraps things up with a further four cadenza passages. 'This is a very challenging work for solo clarinet. The saxes are 2 Altos & 2 Tenors. The Clarinet range is up to super C.
