"The Nightingale" Flute and Clarinet duet with Piano is a flute and clarinet duet in Barcarolle tempo and in ternary form. (also flute and clarinet duet are available)
I wanted the lilting tempo in the outer sections to have a medieval minor tone, to work with the contrasting major section in the middle.
I very much wanted it to be a "duet" rather than the flute and clarinet at different levels, so the parts are pretty equally divided. It is romantic in nature, but uses modes and has a few interesting harmonies.
It is placed at intermediate level, about associated board grade 4/5 (top note E for clarinet (only once I believe-F for flute)- dotted quaver semiquaver is the most complicated rhythm)some early intermediate players may be able to manage..It would be very suitable for concerts, recitals, weddings as well as an incidental piece. There are 2 instrumental pages per part and the piano part has 5 pages- 5 minutes in length.
Includes Accompaniment Track for rehearsal and performance purposes.
