After years of writing string quartet arrangements, I was asked to adapt some of them for clarinet quartet (3 clarinets and 1 bass clarinet). This is the first of them.

Johann Strauss, Jr. (1825-1899), the "Waltz King", also produced a great deal of other popular dance music for the Viennese public including polkas, galops, schottisches, and quadrilles, in addition to his 13 operettas. The "Thunder and Lightning" Polka ("Unter Donner und Blitz") was originally composed in 1868 unter the title "Shooting Stars" Polka.

I will be posting more works for clarinet quartet (and sax quartet). To find them (and more than 160 works arranged for string quartet) go to: http://stores.sibeliusmusic.com/jacklichmusic
