ALL PURCHASES COME WITH SCORE AND PARTS1992 The Mini Concerto For Alex, for solo cello (about grade 6 or 7) and school orchestra was commissioned in 1992 by Ibstock Place School for a talented young cellist, Alex Hunt, who was a student at the school at the time. The Head of the schools music department was Chris Artley, who was a marvelous support to me, throwing my way many wonderful opportunities or orchestrate for the Ibstock Place orchestra. The Mini Concerto For Alex is just one example. Chris is now a very successful composer living and working in New Zealand!Duration: approx. 10 minutes.In one movement, this piece is light in character and great fun for a school orchestra with a young, aspiring cellist.There are two Arrangements;No.1 For Solo Cello and School Orchestra.Instrumentation as follows: 1st Flute2nd Flute1st Bflat Clarinet2nd Bflat Clarinet3rd Bflat Clarinet1st Alto Saxophone2nd Alto Saxophone1 Trumpet in Bflat2 TimpaniSide Drum(brushes and sticks)Sleigh BellsTambourineMaraccasCymbals(crash and suspended)TriangleWind ChimesGlockenspeilPianoKeyboard(strings and celesta sounds)*Solo CelloViolin 1Violin 2Violin 3ViolasCellosDoubles BassesNo.2 For Solo Cello and PianoThere is a choice of 2 cadenzas: The first one is fairly easy and the second one is for the more advanced soloist.
