This is meant to be a light addition to a more serious concert programme - maybe to get the audience back in their seats after the interval. It could possibly be used alongside an audience member playing the very simple percussion part with a triangle or ride cymbal. Only the solo clarinettist needs to improvise - there is very little thematic material - only the simple motifs in the first few bars are important; the rest of the time you just make it up! It can be played without the second clarinet and the percussion i.e. just as a duet for clarinet and bass clarinet.

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.
