Bass Clarinet part from Eine kleine Nachtmusik arr for Clarinet Quartet

Composer
W A Mozart
Duration
21 minutes
Genre
Classical music

My arrangement of the 1st Mvt of Eine kleine Nachtmusik for Clarinet Quartet was made in Aug 2001 followed by the Saxophone Quartet version in Aug 2003. Here now is the full work. The movements could be played individually or as a whole. Whichever way you approach it, the arrangement should give all your players plenty to do in the study of this delightful Mozart piece. A few points: (a) I have 'written out' Mozart's ornaments but their performance is a matter of choice. (b) at 38 in the 2nd Mvt see notes in 2/3 Cl re performance. (c) An optional cut could be made in the 2nd Mvt from 2 pulses before 'B' to two pulses before 'C'. (d) See the Score about performance directions in Mvt 3 - Menuetto. (e) Repeats in all Mvts are a matter of choice except perhaps in the Menuetto. (f) I have reworked the 1st Mvt taking into account that most groups now use a Bass Clarinet in lieu of 4th Bb Clarinet. Where double Bass Clarinet notes are shown, the lower is preferred if avaialble.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
