Bridge Over Troubled Water, by Paul Simon, was the last song writtenfor the last Simon and Garfunkel album.It was a huge worldwide hit in 1970, selling six million copies and winning severalGrammies. Yet the song nearly wasn’t released as a single at all; radiostations at the time rarely played songs longer than three minutes and Bridge Over Troubled Water came in atfive. This version is arranged as a duet for one Violin and one Cello.

Musicians at an intermediate level and above willfind this ideal for formal and informal concert performances, with plenty ofopportunity for expressive playing and dynamic contrast. The overallperformance time is around four and a half minutes. The short sample audio is from the Clarinet and Alto Saxophone version while the full-length youtube performance is the Clarinet Duet.

Teachers will enjoy using this arrangement as a fun way to helpwith ensemble skills. There are some challenging syncopated rhythms, thoughknowing the original song well will help.
