This classic segment is one of the most well-loved in the suite. And what better instrumental ensemble to perform Dance Of the Reed Pipes than a clarinet choir! In order to provide adequate breathing space in busy sections, the hocket technique (shifting the melodic line back and forth between two players) is utilized in several places. Duration 2:30.

    When we read this we liked the transcription but wasn't our favorite. The cymbal part adds some contrast in the middle section. With the parts Bb Soprano parts div. you need the 6 recommended so you would need 10 people the really pull this off. We will not be...

    playing this one for now.
