Bass Clarinet 1 part from Capriccio Espagnol - (Clarinet Choir)

Rimsky-Korsakov arr. Alun Cook
15 minutes
Classical music

A famous piece with spectacular clarinet parts, here condensed down for Clarinet Choir for those brave enough to try. Some fast tonguing required and the occasional tricky key signature. Scored for Eb Cl, 4 Bbs, Alto and Bass Clarinets, there are optional 2nd Bass, Contra Alto and Contra Bass parts, and the Eb and Alto parts have alternative Bb clarinet parts provided (so a minimum of 6 Bbs and 1 Bass). Clarinets 1-5 also have the final section transposed for Clarinet in A clarinet (to avoid a section in B major) .

There is only one Alborada because of the keys and scoring of the original but it may be played again as a Movement 3 to retain the original structure .

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, 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 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.
