“The Nightingale” Clarinet duet and Piano is a clarinet duet in Barcarolle tempo and in ternary form. (also flute duet and violin duet are available)

Written in concert E minor,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 clarinet duet rather than clarinet 1 and clarinet 2, 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- dotted quaver semiquaver is the most complicated rhythm. It would be very suitable for concerts, contests, recitals, weddings as well as an incidental piece. There are 2 clarinet pages per part and the piano part has 6 pages- 5 minutes in length.
