St John's Dance


by Tom Coult

Full Orchestra
picc.2.3.ebcl.2(II=bcl).2.cbsn - 4.4.2.btrbn.1 - perc(3): I: xyl/pair of roto toms/2 II: t.bells/mar/tam-t/BD (may be shared with III) III: pair of bongos/BD (may be shared with II) - harp - strings Performance Note: Clarinet 1 is required to play a ‘half-clarinet’ at bar 122. This is created by placing the mouthpiece directly on the lower half of the instrument. The player might use a separate instrument for this, though time is given to change the setup during rests. The majority of Bb instruments will be able to achieve this arrangement – if player I’s instrument cannot and no spare is used, this part may be performed by player II or by the E flat clarinettist (on a Bb half clarinet).
Commissioned by BBC Radio 3
