Drum Kit part from Samba..alla Turca! (Clarinet Choir)

4 minutes
Classical music

Just before Xmas, 2006, I received an email and letter from Michel Paris, the artistic director of the French clarinet ensmeble, La Cl� des Anches, based in Perpignan.
Michel writes: Our ensemble comprises 20 amateur clarinets (1 Eb, 15 Bb, 2 Eb alto, 1 Bb bass clarinet, and percussion) who all share their passion for music and performance, and which we then share with our audience.
We strive to include all kinds of music in our concerts: classical, jazz, folk & contemporary. We are certainly the only clarinet choir in the Languedoc Roussillon area of France - see attached photo.
I am happy to oblige with this special arrangement which, whilst based on the wind quintet version, does have a few little extra tweaks, to accommodate the different ranges, and qualities of the clarinet family!
At the request of Alan Taylor, a student at
Trinity College of Music, I have now added a version of the Alto Clarinet part, transposed for the regular Bb instrument.

N.B. In the present economic climate, a good number of smaller ensembles understandably buy just the set of parts as, in reality, these alone are all that is needed in performance. Equally, a similar number buy both the parts and the full score. To compensate for this, I intend to reduce the cost of the full score by $4, and increase the price of the lead part by $3, a differential that wasn’t available to sellers at the former SibeliusMusic.com.

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.
