Stranger on the Shore was a huge hit for British clarinettist Acker Bilk back in the ‘60s and remains the most popular andrequested melody for that instrument. But this piece sounds good on anyinstrument and this version is arranged as a duet for one Clarinet and one Alto Saxophone.

Musicians at all levels from an easy intermediate standardupwards will find this a popular repertoire piece for both formal and informalconcert performances, with plenty of interest and variety in both parts. Theoverall performance time is around two and a half minutes. The short audio sample is from the Clarinet and Alto Saxophone version while the full length youtube performance is the version for two Clarinets.

Teachers will enjoy using this arrangement as a fun way to teachensemble playing and talking about tone quality. There is plenty of opportunityfor expression and a wide pitch range is used. Comparisons with the originalrecording will open up opportunities to discuss vibrato and other expressivetechniques.
