Woodwind Quartet, String Quartet, Flexible instrumentation - Intermediate
By Cyndi Lauper. Arranged by Paul Burnell. Score, Set of Parts. 33 pages. Published by Paul Burnell (H0.244665-867275).

Item Number: H0.244665-867275

For instruments in four parts

The arrangement is suitable for multiple quartet combinations with parts available (and potential instrumentations suggested) as follows:

Part 1: C, Eb (flute, oboe, alto recorder, Eb clarinet, violin 1)

Part 2: C, Bb (oboe, tenor recorder, Bb clarinet, violin 2)

Part 3: C - alto & bass clefs, Bb, Eb, F (Bb clarinet, bass recorder, alto saxophone, horn in F, viola)

Part 4: C - bass clef, Bb, F (bassoon, great bass recorder, tenor saxophone, horn in F, 'cello)

Any other appropriate instruments, even if not suggested above, may play.

Although the score is presented with layout appropriate for string quartet this does not indicate a preferred instrumentation.

Examples of the 'clicks/taps/pops etc.' indicated by the X noteheads at the beginning and end of the piece include:

Woodwind - instrument key clicks or slaps, slapping the bell aperture of clarinet or oboe with palm of the hand

Brass - tapping the instrument bell with fingernail, slapping top of mouthpiece with palm to produce a 'mouthpiece pop'

Strings - tapping the body of the instrument with fingers.


Programme note:

'True Colors', written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly, was the title track from American singer Cyndi Lauper's second album. Released as a single in 1986 it spent two weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached number 12 in the UK singles chart.
