A double reed transcription of the Intermezzo from Carmen Suit No. 1. This was one of the most difficult pieces I’ve ever tried to transcribe, but I didn’t want to leave it out of the suite. Trying to mimic the harp with a double reed ensemble was difficult, but I decided to split it among many parts so notes could ring a little instead of giving the part to just one player. Also, I was very tempted to change the key because of the horrible range, but no matter which way I went, it only created more problems than it solved. As such, a very simple and beautiful piece has become quite difficult to play. Still, with a lot of breath control and skill, it works rather nicely.
