Item Number: S0.176909

Arranged clarinet quintet of Eb, 2 Bbs, alto and bass. (Alt Bb clt provided for alto).

 I have attempted to give the bass clarinet a breather from the relentless repetitive rhythm by giving it to a clarinet (part 3) for some of the time.

 The vocal/trumpet melody is given, in the main to a Bb clarinet (part 2). 

I have NOT written it tutti throughout, unlike other arrangements you may find. 


 The Carmen Suites are two suites of orchestral music drawn from the music of Georges Bizet’s 1875 opera Carmen and compiled posthumously by his friend Ernest Guiraud. They adhere very closely to Bizet’s orchestration.

Also arranged for other instrumental groups.

Other movements from the two suites are available.
