NM04       Mozart Divertimenti 1,2 & 3

Playing the above divertimenti in the original combination inspired this arangement  by Tony Turrill of a Mozart piano sonata.

NM06       Mozart “Three Ladies and an Orchestra”

An arrangement by Alan Hacker of the trio from act 1 of The Magic Flute; three Bb Cls. for the ladies and one for the orchestra.  A surprisingly well balanced quartet that is a small tribute by Alan’s to his lifelong love affair with the music of Mozart.

NM2005 Sweeney Cha b’ann grad 

This  piece for seven clarinets was arranged by William Sweeney from his opera An Turus   The playing time is only three minutes but once heard, the haunting  melody  will remain in the listener’s mind for much longer.  It was first played by some of his many friends at Alan Hacker’s sixtieth birthday party and then again later by the great and good of Britain’s clarinet profession at his funeral..  This work is an essential addition to any Clarinet Ensemble’s repertoire (6Cl/Bass Cl)

A sax choir version has been prepared and recorded by Richard Ingham,  NM2005s
