For Bb Clarinet and Piano

W. A. Mozart Arr. John Grady
16 minutes
Classical music

These fun miniature masterpieces by the 27 year old Mozart are from a collection of 5 Divertimenti for 3 Bassett Horns (2 Clarinets and Bassoon) in Bb. This arrangement for Clarinet in Bb and Piano keeps the original first Clarinet (Bassett Horn) part intact but the remaining two parts in the piano part include minor changes, including added harmony, to make for a more pianistic accompaniment. High-intermediate to advanced Clarinetists and Pianists can enjoy these gems from Mozart’s pen recalling the days of Viennese aristocratic musical entertainment. Total performance time is about 16 minutes. This piece is a resetting of the fourth of WA Mozart’s 5 Divertimenti for 3 Bassett horns (or 2 Clarinets and Bassoon). The original first clarinet part remains intact, while the 2nd and 3rd parts are re-scored for piano. This re-scoring utilizes changes to the original wind parts when needed, including added harmony notes, changes in octave, and melodic modifications to accommodate piano technique and a balanced sound. The piano part is not a reduction, but a fully realized independent part. The clarinet and piano parts together constitute a significant addition to the clarinet literature. Performance time is about 16 minutes.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

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.
