“The Nightingale” Flute and Clarinet Duet with Piano
“The Nightingale” Flute and Clarinet duet and Piano is a lilting Barcarolle tempo and in ternary form composed by Grant Horsley. (also flute duet, clarinet duet and violin duet are available)
In Concert E minor, I wanted the gentle 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 flute and clarinet duet rather than a dominant instrumental part 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 early intermediate level, about associated board grade 4/5 – dotted quaver semiquaver is the most complicated rhythm). On the youtube link there is the full score for you to assess suitability.
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 6 pages- 5 minutes in length.
