First Suite in E-flat [Clarinet Choir], Op28/1


From the Publisher

Holst's First Suite in E-flat is one of the most influential works in the concert band repertoire and consists of three contrasting movements (Chaconne, Intermezzo, March) all based on a singular motif. The optional percussion parts are taken directly from the manuscript and help add to the martial feel of the piece. A very exciting piece to perform and a delight for any audience.

Difficulty guide: 5-7
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
