Adagio-Tarantella

DETAILS/COMMENTS: Duration approx 5 Min.
Slow, expressive, Italian opera-esque introduction (Adagio), followed by a lively Tarantella. A pleasing and fun piece. Be aware that there is a full version and an abridged version; both are common.

Debussy, Claude    ed. by David Hite
La Fille au Cheveux de Lin (The Girl with the Flaxen Hair)

This short work is calm and very expressive. It is idiomatic and composed of mostly eighth notes and sixteenth notes. Great solo piece for a budding clarinetist.
