A Study In Contrasts

By Sammy Nestico

Clarinet choir (optional Eb, 4 Bb, Eb alto, Bb bass, optional BBb contra-bass, & optional Eb contra-alto/bass clarinets) - Grade 4
Composed by Sammy Nestico. Score and set of parts. Duration 2 minutes, 30 seconds. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.15740).

Item Number: KN.15740

Published in 1964, this well established contest and recital favorite in two movements presents the ensemble in dramatically different stylistic lights. The first movement is a larghetto theme that should be played very freely with much expression, while the second is a lilting scherzando featuring a steady pulse. Rich harmonies abound in both. Duration 2:30.

    Two Movement piece titled "The Demure and The Delightfull"--I respectfully disagree. Both movements are delightfull! It can be played as a mixed quintet or full choir. Cute melodies, intriguing harmonies (and unusual voicings-esp. in Eb soprano part). A favorite with my bunch.
